The Virgin and Child on a Throne of Angels

Ca. 1661. Oil on canvas.
On display elsewhere

Espinosa was the leading painter working in Valencia in the mid-seventeenth century. He deployed a naturalistic style characterised by precise description and a selective use of light. Most of his works depict religious themes, including the present canvas with its unusual subject matter. The compositional rigour and monumental character make this canvas particularly outstanding within Espinosa’s oeuvre.
