The Holy Family with St Dorothy

Oil on panel, 53 x 46 cm
Private collection

This composition is set against a drape and a view onto a distant landscape. The Virgin and Child are supported by a marble relief on which a classical scene is carved. St Dorothy seems to be kneeling before Christ, offering him a basket of roses.
