The Holy Family became a popular subject in art in the early 16th century, both in Italian Renaissance paintings and in Dutch and Flemish Renaissance paintings. The popularity of the subject has been linked to an increase in interest and dedication to St. Joseph. In the late Middle Ages, he became a comic character, his age was emphasized, and he often fell asleep during nativity scenes. In the 15th century, the brotherhood dedicated to Joseph was part of a revival of pious interest, and he is now at least sober and often shows an active role in parenting. Many of the early Holy Family works are either nativity scenes or the rest of the flight to Egypt, with other event-specific elements removed. Such as the nativity of the Ox and donkey to focus on the spiritual image of the three main figures, mainly for the affluent family. Or, many pieces apparently come from Mary and the child, with st. Joseph added. Often these people are shown in close-ups, taking up most of the space in the image. Later, the Holy Family bronze sculpture became more and more popular.
