In this painting the Archangel Gabriel is exquisitely depicted.
Details are richly highlighted 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.
Look at the exquisite facial features and the color composition, it is just simply amazing.
