The Visitation, 1750/55

About the object

The small-format painting depicts the Visitation of Mary. The encounter between Mary and Elisabeth, which is described in the Gospel of Luke, is staged here in expressive colours. The yellow ray of light that shines on the women from heaven symbolises the presence of God. Sketches in oils of this kind were made so that clients could get an overall idea of ?? the shape and colour palette of the work.
