STROZZI, Bernardo
(b. 1581, Genova, d. 1644, Venezia)

Sleeping Child

Oil on canvas, 35 x 48 cm
Residenzgalerie, Salzburg

With flushed cheeks, the child lies fast asleep; its tiny fingers seem to be moving as it dreams. Strozzi foregoes distracting, non-essential details, setting his close-up composition in very compact space in the foreground.
