The Flight into Egypt, Francesco Zuccarelli, R.A. (1702-1788).

Oil on canvas, 90cm by 104cm.

The artist, who was extremely popular in England for his Italianate rococo landscapes, was a founder member of the R.A. and enjoyed royal patronage. The 9th Earl of Exeter bought this painting in England after 1752 and regarded it as one of Zuccarelli’s “best performances”.
