Saint John the Baptist Child French school from the 18th century
Charming 18th century painting representing Saint John the Baptist as a child in shepherd’s clothing and holding a reed cross.
Painted in the guise of a young man or even an almost aristocratic teenager, very handsome, with curly hair, a very fine and delicate face with all the attributes that characterize him. At his side stands the lamb, which stands up on its two legs and stares at him. Fantastic landscape against a wooded background at nightfall. In a beautiful period carved oak frame.
