John the Baptist is the only saint, besides the Mother of the Lord, for whom are celebrated both the birth in heaven and the birth in the flesh. He was the greatest of the prophets because he could indicate the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. 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 the young Jesus, always covered with lambskin and affectionately called ‘little St. John’. The work that we show here represents both St. John and Jesus as children and alludes to his early hermitage. The technique used is typical of the Flemish period from the first half of 1700, that is, oil on copper.
