Rest on the Flight into Egypt

XVII century. Grey-brown wash, Pencil, Pencil ground on yellow laid paper.
Not on display

This drawing depicts Saint Joseph standing to the left with the Christ Child in his arms. Meanwhile, the Virgin, to whom an angel carries some fruit, is seated at the foot of a tree. Above them, there are some cherubim.

It is undoubtedly of a style typical of Murillo, but it is very difficult to acknowledge it as by his hand. The artist was certainly one of his pupils, who are still little known.
