Rest on the way to Egypt by Albrecht Altdorfer

Rest on the way to Egypt by Albrecht Altdorfer

As follows from the inscription in the painting, Altdorfer donated his work to a temple.

The scene of peaceful rest of Joseph and Mary with the Child at the fountain on the way to Egypt is presented by the artist somewhat sentimental, and the landscape – a mountainous sea shore, in which, in the bright rays of the setting sun, there are toy houses and turrets, it reminds a cozy fairy tale.
