Video Clips

The following are two short clips of Ricardo Bellver’s El Ángel Caído (1877) in Madrid’s Retiro Park and the replica Fallen Angel (1878) in the Spanish capital’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando (Bellver’s alma mater), which include analysis of why these stunning statues can truly be said to have brought the proud Miltonic-Romantic tradition’s Lucifer to life as the very pinnacle of the Satanic sublime.
