                        Artist:
                        Raimundo Capuz

                        Outskirts
Outstanding among his Valencian works are the sculptures
he prepared for the facade of the Monastery of San Miguel:
St Jerome and St Paula.
St Miguel and the Angel dates from 1700. In the first work
he captured the fight with the devil. The same theme is
worked into the sculpture of the same saint in the main
altarpiece of the church of 1773.
His forms are more rounded and stress the sculptural
strength of the baroque. He attained perfection with his
allegorical figures.
