(first third of the 15th century)

Head of St John the Baptist

Alabaster, 15 x 8 x 7 cm
Szépművészeti Múzeum, Budapest

The present alabaster head of St John might have been made in a workshop of the so-called “Rimini-master“. This great alabaster workshop has not yet been localised, its leader has been named after his chief work originating from Rimini and preserved at the Liebieghaus in Frankfurt.
