Explore the paintings

Saint John, at the right, baptises Christ in the River Jordan.

This panel, together with the artist's 'The Dead Christ with Angels', formed the altarpiece at the Laderchi chapel in S. Domenico, Faenza. The panel showing Christ's baptism by Saint John formed the central part of the altarpiece. The two women at the left may represent the Virgin and Saint Anne or Saint Elizabeth, but these figures are not usually included in depictions of this scene.
