Rest on the Flight into Egypt

Church of Nunziatella, Naples

In the half-lunettes flanking the façade-wall window appear the Rest on the Rest on the Flight into Egypt and The Holy Family at Work. Neither of these scenes is described in the gospels, but they were tolerated by the Counter-Reformation because of their long tradition. These paintings include everyday objects and their settings, a charming landscape and a domestic idyll.
