The Holy Family with the Infant St. John the Baptist and St. Elizabeth

Description

40 x 52 in. Mary and Joseph appear to smile as John and Christ playfully embrace. On the right is a procession of Christ’s first martyrs, the Holy Innocents. In the distance, a family in a boat and horsemen on land recall the Holy Family’s flight into Egypt to save the Christ Child from death and the Innocents who were killed in His place.
