Ex Aegypto Vocavi Filium Meum

Description

The Latin quote is from Hosea 11:1 as cited in Matthew 2:15: “Out of Egypt I have called my son.” The work is of the return from Egypt, as is seen not just from the quote, but from the fact that Jesus is older than in Fenzoni’s accompanying work at St. Mary Major’s of the Flight, where Jesus is shown as a baby in Mary’s arms.
