The artwork photographed is an oil painting by José Roldán y Martínez (1808-1871), which is in turn a copy after the original oil painting by Alonso Cano (1601-1667). The original by Cano is in the Cathedral of Seville. The later copy by Martínez was formerly in the Stirling Maxwell Collection, Glasgow.

Here the photographer has placed the camera close to the original artwork and has excluded the painting's surroundings. To see the easel the painting was set up on to have it's photograph taken, and it's surroundings, see Schaaf number 4761.
