The coloured lithography of the Little Angel creates complementary counterpart to a similar graphics of two girls. It probably came to being in the 1930s when Toyen was engaged in working on book a magazine illustrations the most. The religious theme is completely unique in the work of Toyen that is why this is an illustration of a specific template. The gothic window arch, of which every architectonic component is depicted in a detail, is not typical for Toyen either. Just as her faith, this building has a big rift also. The figure of the Little Angel does not have a realistic human appearance; its character is more the one of a puppet.
This lithograph appears in the auctions in the Czech Republic on rare occasions only. The last time it was offered in 2007.
