Angel with a Crown of Lilies

1767 - 1769. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

This is a fragment of Saint Joseph with the infant Christ, painted for the convent church of San Pascual in Aranjuez, and now in Detroit. Although Giambattista required the help of his son Domenico to undertake the project, this small angel seems to be entirely painted by his own hand.
