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

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.
