Martino Piazza: 'Saint John the Baptist in the Desert'

Explore the paintings

The Baptist is depicted filling his bowl with water from a spring. His cross, faintly indicated in gold, may be discerned in the shadows behind him. The subject, involving an under-dressed young male in wild scenery, is one which Leonardo made popular. Piazza worked at Lodi near Milan.
