Historia

This painting belonged to the collection of the wealthy banker from Navarre, Juan Martín de Goicoechea y Galarza, friend and patron of a number of artists including Francisco de Goya.

It was inherited by María Pilar Alcíbar-Jáuregui y Lasauca, the second wife of one of the Counts of Sobradiel, appearing in a family inventory from 1867. The painting later belonged to the Counts of Orgaz in Madrid, and was subsequently inherited by the current owner.

Análisis artístico

The painting belongs to a pair of devotional pieces together with Coming of the Virgin of the Pillar.

Until a few years ago the work bore the title Sacred Family and the Eternal Father. Some authors prefer the title Triple Generation because the painting depicts a family sequence featuring the Holy Spirit, God Our Father, Saint Joachim and Saint Anne, the Virgin Mary and Christ Child.

The painting moves away from the academic style, and some of the figures display a certain freedom of technique, as can be seen in the depiction of Mary and Jesus, as well as the simplicity of Goya's portrayal of Saint Joseph. This simplified design is most evident in the folds of the tunics worn by Saint Joseph and Saint Anne.

More information can be found at Coming of the Virgin of the Pillar to Zaragoza.
