Holy Family

Bazzi Giovanni Antonio called Sodoma
(Vercelli 1477 - Siena 1549)

The work, documented in the collection from the middle of the seventeenth century, is mentioned in the inventory of 1790 with an attribution to Sodoma, which has always since been accepted by critics. The painting is part of a series of small-scale devotional panels for domestic use, in which the artist reworks the theme of the Holy Family. Saint Joseph is holding out a rose to the infant Jesus, forming a tender bond with him.
