John the Baptist is the saint most represented in the art of all centuries: there is no altarpiece or picture of a group of saints, alone or around the Virgin Mary, in which this saint is not present, usually covered with a lambskin and holding in his hand a stick that ends in the shape of a cross.
He is often depicted as a child, playing with little Jesus always covered with sheep skin and affectionately called "San Giovannino".
The work here depicts both San Giovannino and Jesus as children and alludes to his early hermitage. The technique used is typical of the Flemish period of the first half of the 1700s, i.e. oil on copper.
Size: 33x28 cm.
