Luca Signorelli: 'The Holy Family'

Explore the paintings

The Holy Family of Mary, Joseph and the Child Jesus is here associated with the image of the 'Virgo Lactans', for the Virgin is about to suckle the child. The strawberries which the Christ Child holds in this painting may refer to his fruitful and righteous life, or to the blood of the Passion. The picture has been heavily restored, probably around 1900.
