CANO, Alonso
(b. 1601, Granada, d. 1667, Granada)

St John the Baptist

Polychrome wood, 119 cm

During his time in Seville, Cano had mainly been influenced by the work of Juan Martínez Montañés, as indicated by his St John the Baptist, very much representative of the idealized naturalism that was to become an essential characteristic of his work.
