This is a one of a kind, colonial art framed oil painting on canvas, made in Cuzco/Peru.
It depicts the Archangel St Michael.

Details are embellished with bronze leaf, an indicative of the artists of the Cuzco School of Arts.
This addition of stenciled or painted gold leaf onto oil paintings is called, as it was in early contracts, brocateado. It is also sometimes termed sobredorado (overgilding) and has also been described as escarchado.

The history of the Peruvian painting has its origins at the colonial era. The Spanish painters who arrived at the Viceroyalty of Peru taught their techniques to the local artists, and they began to shape in its linen cloths its own representations, proposing a new iconographic interpretation of the Peruvian reality. The catholic divinities were adapted to indigenous sensitivity and gave like result an own and singular way that had its maxim expression in the "School of Cusco Painting" ( La Escuela Cusqueña), during centuries XVII and XVIII.

This unique painting arrives to you in a stunning handcarved cedar wood frame.
Its delightful, meticulous handcarved patterns have been bathed in bronze leaf, simply amazing.
