Complete photographic details:

This precious rummy, which stands out for its excellent executive refinement and miniaturistic quality, represents the Archangel Michael who submits Evil.

The work draws inspiration, albeit with some personalization, from the famous 'San Michele Arcangelo defeats Satan', created by Lelio Orsi (Novellara, 1511 - 1587), called Lelio da Novellara, in Reggio Emilia, and today at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford : the first of a series of small paintings that make up the best known aspect of the painter.
Link of the work:

Probably educated between Mantua and Emilia, his style shows a knowledge of the graphic and pictorial work of Giulio Romano, but also of Correggio and Parmigianino.

The rummy shows the Archangel Michael who, engaged in the fight against Evil, is represented as a young man in armor of rare beauty, strong and delicate at the same time who rejects an irritated devil in hell, whose head is trampled with his foot ; The rich drapery envelops the angel's body with an intense classicism, mindful of Correggio's teachings, where a balanced composition focuses the observer's attention on his angelic face.

The authorship of the work is therefore to be connected to a painter active in the Emilian area in the seventeenth century, whose hand denotes good technical and executive skills.

The conservation conditions of the work appear excellent.

Like all our objects, the work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and a descriptive card (FIMA - CINOA).
