In the period 1504-06 Pinturicchio accepted some smaller commissions in Siena, in addition to working in the Piccolomini Library. Among these commissions he painted scenes from the life of St John the Baptist in the Chapel of St John in the cathedral. Here he depicted the portrait of the donor, Alberto Aringhieri, in the habit of a knight of Malta.
