The Infant Jesus Asleep

Fontana Lavinia
(Bologna 1552 - Rome 1614)

The painting is signed and dated. It is a reduced-size replica of the well-known painting of the Holy Family in the Escorial, compared to which, besides Saint Joseph, Saint Elizabeth and Saint John the Baptist as a Child around the Madonna and Child group, the painter has also inserted two angels at the top, holding the green drapes of the canopy.
