Very large oil on canvas of John the Baptist with a raven at his side.  Wonderfully atmospheric painting, full of decorative appeal.

History ~
Mid 19th century, France, on a later stretcher.

Condition ~
There are many small areas of paint loss but the canvas is intact. The canvas has been nailed onto a later stretcher and the stretcher is visible around the edges of the canvas. However this does not detract from the appeal of the work.

Dimensions ~
H 158 x W 102 cms, unframed.
