Fine old Spanish Colonial retablo painting on tin, dating from the 19th century and probably Mexican in origin. This beautiful retablo depicts Saint Joseph holding the Christ child nestled in his arms. Painted on heavy gauge tin. This work is beautifully painted in a sophisticated manner, probably by a classically trained artist, with a richly colored palette and excellent composition. Unsigned - undated. Circa 1850 - 1880.
