God the Father painting the Immaculate Conception

Ca. 1690. Oil on canvas

Seated on a cloud, God the Father holds a brush in his right hand, using it to add the final touches to a depiction of the Immaculate Conception. The idea of God as a painter was widespread in Golden Age Spanish culture and was used to allegorically explain the creation of the world or to pay tribute to the art of painting.
