Cuzco School, Oil On Canvas

Lot 0050 Details

Description
Cuzco School Painting. Cuzco School oil on canvas painting from mid 18th to early 19th C. This is a typical representation of Saint Anthony of Padua with the Jesus child and lilies. The lily symbolizes purity, innocence, integrity. With great frequency, St. Anthony is shown holding both a lily and the Christ child. A special significance can be drawn from this. Placing a vulnerable child under the care of another human being shows a tremendous amount of trust toward that person. The risks are apparent: Any child can be easily harmed, neglected, misguided or even abused by a human parent or mentor. In light of this, God gave Mary an immense honor in choosing her as Jesus' mother. St. Joseph, too, received a similar honor. And when Catholic tradition through its many painters and artisans placed the child Jesus in Anthony's arms, they were granting the saint a similar gesture of honor and trust. 26 X 18 3/8 inches. Minimal restoration work has been done on this work of art. This lot is guaranteed as described or your money back.
