The devotional image of Joseph holding the Christ child is a perennial favourite of Catholic iconography.
The painting needs a clean and the craquelure has not been overpainted.
It has been relined and put in a new stretcher. There seems to have been a hole or some other reason for overpainting near the upper left corner.
