THE HOLY FAMILY ICON This particular icon of the Holy Family is a “Western” style icon. In fact, the Latin Rite does have a long standing icon history and claim to style, although other later liturgical styles, like Gothic and Baroque, for example, share equal liturgical footing at this point in time.
In fact, this Holy Family icon was first introduced in the Holy Land during the 20th century. It was designed to meet the needs or devotions of Catholics and other rites in union with them, although you will see it popping up on Orthodox websites too.
It has symmetry and balance but there’s no attempt to define the figures realistically, as is the case with all icons.The line intensity, the elongation of the figures, and the high contrast indicate that its origin is something other than Greek Byzantine style.
