Saint John the Baptist in the Desert

Author: Jacopo Da Ponte known as Bassano
Century: XVI°
DATE: 1566 POSITION: sacristy on the right - front wall  METHOD: oil painting

This work, along with the Baptism of Christ, was commissioned by Stravazino to be placed in the family chapel in the Saint Marie of the Angels Church. 

Research conducted during the restoration in 1991, on the nature of the pigments, material alteration and on the painting technique, leave little doubt to justly attribute the painting to the artist, who signed the work in the lower left.
