Description The Infant Saint John with the Lamb17th C.oil paintings, 70" H x 47" W.

This painting is a historical masterpiece by the most popular baroque artist of the 17th century spain Bartolome Esteban Murillo.

The painting is deciphered to be a very holy religious piece to the 17th century spain ,for this piece was even put in the high chapel ofPlaza de Santa María la Blanca in Seville during its reopening.

As said before,this piece is not the original ,for with all its glory and value it sits upon the wall in a gallery in London valued at several million dollars but still has the same amount of work,masterpiece and is still a painting and not a print making it only a future generation of the masterpiece of the 17th century Spain ,a piece that has spoken out to millions who visited the area while it was still hung there.

I will state that I am not sure which of his followers have made this one or perhaps it's the second copy of the painting that went lost back in the 17th century but both ways this piece does have its age and historical background and is based off the masterpiece of one of the strongest artists of the 17th century.

This piece has been inquired by a niece of a russian soldier that got this piece during World War 1 from a spanish general.Unfortunately,I do not have more details regarding the inquiry of this item or where the general required it.

The piece has alot of wear in about 5-10 percent of the painting but does not affect the piece in any way.


The painting came to the United States rolled up and has been framed around 1942,on the back of the painting there is a signature or a writing that I personally cannot make up probably from wearing out over the ages.

The painting is painted on a handwoven canvas as seen in the pictures above,which is dated to the 17th/18th century.

You are welcome to come and examine the painting up close.

The painting will need to be crated for maximum security by a proffesional art packer.

The shipping will be free worldwide,customer is responsible for insurance.

The Infant Saint John with the LambThe Infant Saint John with the Lamb, 1660-65, oil on canvas, 165 x 106 cm (National Gallery, London)

The Infant Saint John with the Lamb

Murillo depicted Saint John the Baptist many times, almost always as a child with a lamb, a symbol of Christ. This work is the companion piece to the 'Infant Christ as the Good Shepherd' (private collection), whose history it shared until 1840. The two pictures decorated the altar erected in the Plaza de Santa María la Blanca in Seville during the festivities for the church's inauguration in 1665, and were painted shortly before.

Scholars believe that this painting could have formed part of the decoration of the altar that was constructed in the square of Santa María la Blanca on the occasion of the church's reopening in 1665. It probably belonged toDon Justino de Neve, the canon of Seville cathedral and the promoter of the commission, and was the companion piece to a Good Shepherd that is now in the Lane Collection in London. The young Saint John gazes at the spectator with a seductive smile, embracing the lamb while pointing to Christ with his left hand. The figure is depicted in the open air before a landscape background where there is an abundance of clouds, creating an interplay of light and shadow that is reminiscent of Murillo's tenebrist period - see thePenitent Mary Magdalenefor example. The anatomical study of the child is perfect and a magnificent sense of volume has been achieved both in Saint John and the lamb. The child's delicacy and pose anticipate 18th century art.
