John the Baptist (ca. 1513/16)




John the Baptist (ca. 1513/16)
Leonardo da Vinci 1452 – 1519
oil on panel (69 × 57 cm) — ca. 1513/16
Luke 3:16 - John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:
John is pointing towards Heaven, possibly announcing the coming of Christ.

This is the last painting Leonardo made.
