Joseph had been warned in a dream that Herod was searching for the Christ Child, so he took him and the Virgin to safety in Egypt. (Matthew 2:13-15).

Mola painted this subject several times. This painting is probably among the earliest of these treatments. A date in the early 1630s is likely. Stylistically the work shows the influence of Albani.
