A dramatic portrayal of Joseph, the human father of Jesus, is movingly depicted here by artist Edgar Aguirre. The monochrome background pushes his figure even further to the forefront of the canvas and accentuates the gold and bronze tones of the piece. With exquisite brushstrokes, applying purpurine, the artist demonstrates the superb pictorial religious themes generated from the Cuzco School, based on the famous colonial paintings found in the convents of Cuzco in the 16th century. Hand over his heart, pursed lips, and a downward, pensive gaze unite to don the saintliness of this enormously significant religious personage.
