The Preaching of John the Baptist

Oil on panel, 94 x 156 cm
Rubenshuis, Antwerp

In this work, the figures are small-scale and the decorative effect is striking, as is his moderate Mannerist style. The elongated figures with their dark hollow eyes are rather schematic and represented with little plasticity.
