An outstanding antique 18th century oil on canvas painting, likely French or Italian school. Portraying Saint Joseph gazing tenderly at the baby Jesus, and Jesus with his hand outstretched endearingly towards his earthly father. Beautiful rendering to the faces and hands. A high quality work by an unknown painter.
Remarkable emphasis to the details of the religious scene, such as the contrasting tones to emphasize of the cascading folds of cloth around Jesus, the curls of his hair framed by a halo. Set against a cloud and sky background. Measures 28 7/8" x 23 1/4". In overall good antique condition, typical craquelure, the back showing a repair to the canvas as shown.
