SAINT MICHAEL, ABOUT 1428-37

About the Artwork

Originally part of an altarpiece in a church, this panel depicts Saint Michael the Archangel triumphant—sword in one hand, spear in the other—atop the devil in the form of a dragon with a pretzel tail. Although the painting's surface is abraded, Michael's demeanor is remarkably graceful, and many details remain legible. Instead of one set of wings, this angel has three, each composed of a variety of colors. His halo is partially obscured by a voluminous hat of feathers.
