Mission Santa Barbara

Christ Child and St. Anthony is an unusual artwork for a mission collection. It was crafted in a late Byzantine style, which was virtually never adopted by artists in colonial Mexico. It is probably of Southern Italian origin. It most likely arrived at the nmission in the mid- to late 1800s with a friar who served as missionary in the Holy Land and who traveled through Italy on his way to California. Media are tempera and oil on wood.
