Thomas van der Krogt created this dramatic portrait of the archangel St. Michael as an original drypoint with hand coloring. It demonstrates van der Krogt’s unique skill in expressionistically rendering spiritual and religious subjects. Further it is testament to his skill and evolution as a printmaker and painter. In Catholic theology, St. Michael is not a saint but an archangel who leads a heavenly army, protecting the boundaries between good and evil. That is also a classic them in van der Krogt's body of work.
