Saint John in the Desert
Trastevere, Gianicolo, Testaccio
This subject, which Caravaggio would approach several times during his career (Capitoline Museums, Galleria Doria Pamphilj, ecc.), shows a young John the Baptist in meditation. The scene is an occasion for the painter to show his characteristic talent: radiant light and heavily contrasting light made absolutely realistic.
