Master of Borbotó
ACTIVE IN VALENCIA, FIRST QUARTER OF 16TH CENTURY
ST. MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL CONQUERING SATAN, WEIGHING SOULS IN A SCALE

Catalogue Note

The Valencian painter known as the Master of Borbotó, after the altarpiece he painted for the church in that parish, probably trained with the Master of Artés and worked in the orbit of the Master of Perea and Rodrigo Osona I and II. Although artists in this group are often confused for one another, the Master of Borbotó seems to have drawn more inspiration than his contemporaries from the Roman Renaissance, which can be discerned in the landscape in the present painting. The Archangel Michael weighs the souls of a sinner and a faithful person, while stomping barefooted on Satan, who appears as a two-faced demon. The large panel may have belonged to a Last Judgment composition, a favorite subject of this circle of artists. We are grateful to Dr. José Gómez for attributing the present work to the Master of Borbotó.
