  • The painting is presumed to be a pendant to the Doubting Thomas, also painted by Mattia Preti. The renowned artist creates an interesting contrast between the weather-beaten Baptist and the delicate pale-toned Christ. The presence of the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove refers to the rite of Baptism. The original forms part of the National Collection.
