The Preaching of Saint John the Baptist, Abraham Bloemaert, 1590 - 1610

The Preaching of Saint John the Baptist, Abraham Bloemaert, 1590 - 1610

canvas, h 139cm × w 188cm. More details

The protagonist in this scene, John the Baptist, the forerunner of Christ, stands partially concealed in the shade of a group of fanciful trees. It is as if Bloemaert wanted to prove that he could paint virtually anything and everything: a mountainous landscape, leafy trees, as well as figures, either nude or clad in exotic colourful gowns and arranged in complicated poses. All of this proves him to be a master of Mannerism.
