Joseph’s Dream

1805. Oil on canvas Not on display

The sleeping Joseph, his elbow propped on the table and the Infant Christ on his lap, receives the angel’s warning to flee and thus avoid the massacre of children ordered by King Herod (Matthew 2, 13). This is one of López’s most important religious compositions from his early career as a mature artist in Valencia.
