This oil painting on canvas depicts the Archangel Gabriel..
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 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.
Look at the exquisite facial features and the color composition, it is just simply amazing.
Bronze Leaf was used to accentuate finishing touches on this magnificent portrait.
