The Holy Family Venerated By St. Anthony of Padua

Luca Giordano

This picture is likely to have been painted by Luca Giordano during his known absence from Naples in 1664–5, when he spent time in Florence and may even have travelled as far as Venice. He has already contaminated his master Ribera’s style with a Baroque search for the painterly and the picturesque which he learnt from Mattia Preti, Rubens and Pietro da Cortona. The subject is also the appearance of the Cross to the Holy Family, which proved enormously popular in Naples.
