DESCRIPTION

Novo-Hispanic school, 18th century.
"Saint Anthony and the Child",
Oil on canvas.
Slight polychrome losses. Cracked in the upper margin.
Measurements: 64 x 49 cm.
Saint Anthony of Padua is represented, as it is usual in the baroque tradition, as a young beardless and with monastic torsura, dressed with habit. The Infant Jesus caresses his face and the two exchange gentle glances. The episode refers to the miracle of the apparition of Christ in the saint's cell, and thus became his most popular attribute, especially in the 17th century and during the late Baroque period, when this painting was produced. The work of the colonial workshops can be seen in the softening of the canons, although they draw directly from Andalusian models. Small cherub faces emerge from the vaporous background, which radiates from a break of glory in golden shades. The body of the Child acquires sculptural volume, skilfully chiselled by the light.
