Description: A Rest on the Flight into Egypt. The landscape through which the Holy Family is passing is distinctly northern, with pines, blasted oaks and sunlit snow. In the ruins of a half-timbered hut Joseph has made a fire and is drying clothes. His saw lies across his basketful of sticks. Their ass chews what remains of the thatch. In the distance is a snow-covered valley.
