Alberto Torres here depicts Mary tenderly placing a blanket over the baby Jesus as he sleeps. Mary is shown in a grand gown with floral brocade. Torres decorates the clothing and halo with gold leaf, working in the style of the Cuzco school. This is to produce colonial-style religious art of the sort found in that city’s convents and monasteries. The painting — titled “Virgen con el Nino durmiente” in Spanish — is framed with hand-carved cedar embellished with gold leaf. The English translation is ‘Virgin with the Sleeping Child’ and sells for $192.95.
