St Anne Teaching St Mary - Josef Winterhalder

There's going to be a stream of posts on here over the next few days - or maybe the next few hours if I don't get too distracted. All artwork. I have a folder where I've been collecting the redhead works I've came across over the last twelve months; so as it's December, and nearing the end of 2021, I'll share them now.

First up this little one: it's an image showing St Anne teaching a young St Mary. I couldn't find too much information about the provenance, but it's supposedly by the German-Bohemian painter Josef Winterhalder the Younger.

The full image has an odd shield-like shape, so it lacks a bit of impact.

However, with a zoom-in it has a little more charm.
