Not on view

A Dutch artist active in Munich, Hubert Gerhard made multiple sculptures for the city’s Church of Saint Michael. His large figure of the Archangel, to whom the church is dedicated, defeating Satan occupies a central niche on the building’s facade. It is reproduced here in a finely worked engraving by Lucas Kilian, a prominent German printmaker, after a lost drawing by Peter Candid.
