The Club-Footed Boy

1642

Why is it canonical?

At the time of this painting's creation, Naples was under Spanish control. Jusepe de Ribera therefore demonstrated a powerful blend of Spanish heritage and values and Italian artistic influence, notably that of Caravaggio. In typical Baroque fashion, this painting has a moral intention, and uses naturalism to inspire the viewer.
