Salvador Salort-Pons, DIA executive director of Collection Strategies and Information and curator of European paintings, was at Meadow Brook last year when the painting caught his eye, and he identified it as an outstanding example by the Spanish Golden Age master.

"At the DIA we have the expertise and equipment to study works of art and to gain extraordinary insight about them," said Salort-Pons.
Salort-Pons said the DIA owns two other painting by Murillo, The Flight into Egypt and the Immaculate Conception, which will be displayed together with Meadow Brook's The Infant Saint John in the museum's main European Paintings gallery.
