After acquiring The Madonna and Child (left) Prince Albert commissioned this painting of St Joseph, and the two pictures were hung together in the Queen's Bedroom at Osborne House. The works were inspired by early Italian art, being painted on white grounds and with somewhat severe profile views, and they contain hints of the lowland Scottish scenery that would become more prominent in Dyce's later biblical pictures. Commissioned by Prince Albert
