Saint Joseph with Child - Naples 18th century

Antique painting, oil on canvas representing Saint Joseph with the Child.

The painting is a great innovation: Joseph is represented alone with the baby Jesus in his arms.

This representation was reserved for Mary.

In the history of art, he was usually portrayed as an old man (as is also the case in this work), in order to avoid any suspicion of his participation in the procreation of the Child.

For this reason, he was almost always physically detached from Maria.

The importance and quality of this magnificent work are so obvious that it will satisfy even the most experienced and demanding collector.

Great expressive force and emotion but also balance and tenderness come together in this perfect pictorial scene.

Our painting, totally identical both in the strong brushstrokes and in the colors, is in perfect condition and especially in the first canvas.

Conditions: Excellent condition, non contemporary frame.

Exterior dimensions: 100x140cm.
Size of the frame: 85x125cm.
Provenance: Naples eighteenth century.
