About the Museum
The canvas is typical of the picture-within-a-picture approach of the time, intended to visually “update” miracle-inspiring pictures. Rustic elements used in the painting within the painting contrast the sacred with the mundane; the warmly rendered angels and landscape reveal the artist’s Flemish training.
