Interior scene of Jesus surrounded by the Holy Family. Intimate family portrait in draped room with classical furniture. Jesus is a plump, naked child with curly hair, who gazes up at young, beautiful Mary and eagerly reachs up to be embraced by Her. She holds Him with some detachment and looks down at Him with serenity and tenderness. Young male child in arms of older woman is behind Jesus holding a crucifix and looking at Jesus with pleasure and reverence. Young female angel holds small bouquet of wild flowers above the heads of Mother and Child. Older man leans on table, rests head in his hand and looks down on Mother and Child. Holy Family wears halos and robed garments.
