Sitting in clouds, surrounded by angels, St. Joseph sits beside the Virgin, bearing a standard. On the verso is a study, roughly sketched in black crayon with white gouache, of the upper part of a man with outstretched arms shown in profile, turned toward right. Written in ink, across his shoulder: "Antonio Dominici f. 4 Dicembre 1759."
