In the year 1820, a Belgian artist named Joseph Paelinck blessed the world with this beautiful and intimate depiction of the Holy Family, unique in that it features not only Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, but also the Grandparents of our Lord, St. Joachim and St. Anne. In the image, the Virgin Mary and her mother St. Anne hold the Christ Child, observed by Mary's husband St. Joseph and her father St. Joachim. The dramatic lighting and the sharply articulated folds of drapery in this intimate work show Paelinck's admiration of Jacques-Louis David's Neoclassical style.
