This impressive oil painting depicts one of the colonial musician archangels playing the harp.
In this painting, the richly brocaded coat bordered with gold, the broad edgings of lace, the contrasting shades in costume and wings make for extraordinary elegance. The silk stockings are gartered with flowing ribbons, calling to mind the order instituted by the English king in the 14th century. Curling ostrich plumes emphasize the broad rim of his hat. Here anatomy is subordinated to design and decorative effect.
An exquisite portrait, details are richly embellished with bronze leaf, an indicative of the artists of the Cusco School of Painting.
