Saint Michael Archangel

XVII century. Grey-brown wash, Pencil on yellow paper.
Not on display

The Archangel is depicted as being armed, wearing a feathered helmet and a flaming sword in his right hand. He is also holding a scroll with the phrase ‘QVIS VT DEVS’ (Who is like God?) in the left, as he tramples on the devil.

This work is characteristic of the artist´s style as a drawer. Until 1936, a canvas by his hand depicting Saint Michael was preserved in San José (Madrid), as loaned by the Museo del Prado. There is no trace of it to this day, and unfortunately not even a photograph has been kept.
