Object description :

"Saint John The Baptist Child"
"Portrait of a noble girl like Saint John with the lamb" French school Oil on canvas Late 1500s / early 1600s Canvas sizes 99 x 67 frame 113 x 81 This interesting painting represents a very young Saint John -Baptist who, still a child, turns with an intense gaze directly towards the viewer. The painting presents the peculiarities of the French portrait of the late 1500s, so much so that the face of the protagonist takes the form of a beautiful lady. The result is a "vain" Saint-Jean looking child with an unlikely hairstyle for the character's hyeratic canons. It is precisely this intriguing peculiarity that makes the work fascinating and very pleasant, probably made to order for a private room. It is in fact the portrait of a noble girl in the guise of Saint John the Baptist seated next to his lamb with an “Alla Greca” tunic and socks on her feet. The painting was repainted in the 19th century and is in an excellent state of preservation with still vivid colors and a very healthy paint coat. FIMA CINOA Certificate of Authenticity
