Italian School - St Joseph and the Christ child

Italian School - St Joseph and the Christ child
Oil on canvas - Not signed - 18th century

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.
