Christ sleeps in the arms of the Virgin Mary, who raises her finger to her lips to prevent the young St John waking the baby. This gesture has given the picture the nickname of 'The Silence'. In 1671 the painting copied by Etienne Picart was acquired for Louis XIV as the work of Annibale Carracci. Now in the Louvre (Louvre Inv.195), it has been reattributed to Domenichino, c.1605, as a contemporary copy of Carracci's original, once in the Farnese Collection but bought by George III in 1766 and now in the Royal Collection Trust.

After painting landscapes and rural scenes early in his career, a trip to Egypt in 1858-9 led to a change in direction. Thereafter Goodall painted mainly scenes from Egyptian life with Biblical associations. Goodall was elected RA in 1864 and enjoyed great popularity during this time, but his fortunes later declined greatly and in 1902 he was declared bankrupt.
