Determined by training and a long collaboration with Giovanni Battista Pittoni in Venice, his style combines the fluid composition and extreme grace of the Central European Baroque with the vibrant palette of Sebastiano Ricci and his followers. Called to Dresden in 1738, he would spend the rest of his short career at the court of Augustus III. While capable of grand decoration and an occasional altarpiece, his specialty was cabinet pictures with the loose handling of oil sketches. This delightful picture is an important example of Kern’s earliest style. Its color and handling are so purely Venetian, the slightly angular construction and pointing types so indebted to Pittoni, that it could be confused with his work. The drawing, however, is slacker, the impasto gratuitous, and the sentiment a bit saccharine. An early biographer of Bohemian painters, Johann Quirin Jahn, mentions at least six paintings by Kern in the residences of the Counts Czernin at Prague. Apparently forming a series, four represent scenes from the youth of Christ. The Suida-Manning picture has been recently identified as one of those pictures and dated 1730, the date that appears on another picture from the series in a private collection in Bologna.

He was the most important painter in the transition from late Mannerism to the early Baroque in Bohemia. The Fourteen Auxiliary Saints were a popular cult in Central Europe, and the principal saint here, Vitus, identified by the cauldron of his martyrdom, was venerated in Bohemia. While the arched format indicates the composition of an altarpiece, the coating of black chalk on the verso suggests that this drawing was preparatory for a print after the painting. The pronounced angular design, coursing pen work, and physiognomic abbreviation are all characteristic of Skéta’s draftsmanship after his Italian sojourn.
