Linaioli Tabernacle: St John the Baptist

c. 1433
Tempera on panel
Museo di San Marco, Florence

St John the Baptist is depicted on the left wing of the Linaioli tabernacle, while on the right wing St John the Evangelist can be seen. These two figures form part of a work that in 1433 opened the way to a new horizon for early renaissance religious painting.
