MASOLINO da Panicale
(b. 1383, Panicale, d. 1447, Firenze)

Salome Bringing the Head of the Baptist to Herodias (detail)

Baptistery, Castiglione Olona

The detail shows Herodias sitting enthroned in front of a portico. Salome kneels in front of her, holding the Baptist's head. Herodias's ladies-in-waiting recoil at the sight in horror.
