Saint Joseph, Christ's earthly father, has a dream telling him that Mary's child is from God. New Testament (Matthew 1: 18ff.). Champaigne painted this subject at least three times. This one was possibly commissioned for the now demolished church of the Minimes near the present Place des Vosges, Paris.
