The archangel Michael by Theodoros Poulakis. Theodoros Poulakis (ca. 1620-92) from Chania, spent his life in Venice and Corfu, his career paralleling that of his contemporary Emmanuel Tzanes. His work was strongly influenced by Baroque painting, and he often emulated Flemish engravings. Poulakis, together with Tzanes, renewed the vocabulary of late Cretan painting and laid the foundations for the flourishing of Cretan art in the Ionian Islands. Second half of 17th c. 0,76Χ0,543 m. (ΓΕ 3007)
