By the late-1420s, Donatello' preoccupation with the specific demands and possibilities of the relief had developed to become a constant part of his life; this is shown by the Baptism of Christ which is on the font in the Baptistery of the Arezzo Cathedral. The attribution to Donatello is not entirely undisputed.
