Picture in frame

The painting shows St. Anthony holding the Christ child in his left arm and a banner in his right. He stands next to a table. The Christ child appears at the top of the painting in a rompimiento de gloria, or "breaking out of glory," an indication of the celestial world impinging on the terrestrial world.
