Богородица и Младенец с ангелами и свв. Мартиной и Агнией {1316}
Virgin and Child with angels and SS Martina and Agnes
The paintings for the high altar and side altars of the Chapel of San Jose, Toledo, were begun end 1597; completed end 1599.
The Chapel was dedicated to St Joseph, St Teresa's favourite saint - 'the Father of my Soul' - for it was the original intention of the founder, Martin Ramirez (d. 1595) to build a chapel for her (d. 1582).
The paintings for the high altar (still in place) were the St Joseph and the Christ Child, and above, the Coronation of the Virgin; and, for the side chapels, the St Martin and the Beggar and the Virgin and Child with saints.
The image of the Virgin and Child, alone or as a Holy Family, was one of El Greco's most popular subjects, and a number of versions follow this basic pattern for the Virgin and Child.
