FOPPA, Vincenzo
(b. 1427/30, Brescia, d. 1515/16, Brescia)

St Michael Archangel

Tempera on panel, 91 x 34 cm
The Hermitage, St. Petersburg

The panel constitutes one wing of a polyptych. Another wing representing St Stephen the Martyr is also in The Hermitage.

The inscription on the halo can be read as "Sanctus Mich.. angelus Inter...". The visage of the saints shows similarities to those of other Foppa representations.
