The Flight to Egypt

1697. Oil on canvas. Not on display

In this Flight to Egypt, Manuel de Castro reveals his affinity for human types drawn from Maratti, although the Virgin’s physical prototype is similar to both Coello´s and Maratti´s, with a well-defined profile, straight nose and wide forehead. The pictorial treatment is also more linear.
