Immacolata

Bernardo Cavallino

Mary’s Immaculate Conception – without original sin – was celebrated in Naples as early as the 11th century but only acquired dogmatic status in 1854. The iconography dictated by Spanish painter Francisco Pacheco – a girl in a white gown with a blue mantle, her hands joined in prayer over her breast – became the official and hugely popular image of the Immaculate Conception
following the Council of Trent, particularly in Spain and Naples. Cavallino himself tackled the theme on numerous occasions.
