1965 marked a return to the old masters theme featuring 'The Heavenly and Earthly Trinities (The Pedroso Murillo)' by Bartolome Esteban Murillo.

The subject of the painting is comparatively rare, derived from the Gospel episode of the return of Jesus from the Temple with Mary and Saint Joseph. The three figures form an 'earthly' trinity while the dove and the figure of God the Father form the 'heavenly' Trinity.
