Description

  • Francesco Trevisani was a significant painter of Roman late Baroque classicism.

    The Virgin holds the sleeping Child while St Joseph, with a book in his hands, looks over them in the background. The infant St John the Baptist, wearing his attributes, kisses the foot of the infant Christ. The classical style, charm and composition show the influence of the Roman painter, Carlo Maratta, on Trevisani. As the Virgin protectively embraces her Son in a tribute to motherhood, the devotional kiss of St John the Baptist, holding a cross with a ribbon saying ‘Ecce Agnus Dei,’ reminds us that the Child Christ, whose face is placed exactly at the centre of the painting, is the Lamb of God who will take away the sins of the world through his suffering.
