The Virgin and Child, Saint Teresa of Jesus and other Saints

Ca. 1660. Grey-brown wash, Pencil, Red chalk on yellow laid paper.
Not on display

This drawing depicts Saint Teresa, knelt at the feet of the Virgin, receiving a bouquet of flowers, while the child places his left hand on the head of the Saint. Behind the Virgin, a group of Carmelite Saints is represented. A group of Carmelite friars appears just behind Saint Teresa,. The first of them, who is kneeling, is most likely to epitomise Saint John of the Cross.

It is a preliminary work with some variants, the main one being the substitution of the Saints for angels, for the painting that was in the church of San José, in Madrid, before 1936, signed and dated 1660. The drawing must be from this date.
