The Holy Family

Workshop of Joos van Cleve Netherlandish

Not on view

The popularity of Joos van Cleve's Holy Family compositions provided an impetus for the mass production of paintings on this theme; the present example is by an artist in Joos's workshop. He transferred the original design by pouncing, but was clearly less adept at handling and execution than the master.
