Original hand-painted religious paintings OIL0235

Product description:

In this painting the military Archangel is exquisitely depicted.
This archangel is certainly not dressed for war, rather for a ceremonial portrait. His costume seems derived from the flamboyant style of the Netherlands, as set forth in Rembrandt's The Militia Company of Captain Frams Barming Cocq (mistakenly called The Night watch) . There the garb varies from light to black, sashes from wide to narrow; the broad-brimmed hats are heavy with plumes. The portrayal indicates the start of a romanticizing style. Our figure in its picturesque extravagance is out of this world.

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.

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.

Look at the exquisite facial features and the color composition, it is just simply amazing.
