The Holy Family with Saint Augustine

1700 - 1740. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

Using an arrow, symbol of Divine Love, the Christ Child pierces the flaming heart that the kneeling Saint Augustine (354-430), one of the Fathers of the Church, holds out to him in his right hand. The scene is taken from chapter III of Augustine’s Confessions and is depicted in this Catalan artist’s characteristically old fashioned style, evident in the figure types and the use of chiaroscuro.
