About

Special end of the year sale-offer only until December 26th. 18th century neoclassic painting; The preaching of St John the Baptist. The present painting is a wonderful example of Neo-Classical painting and magnificently depicts St. John the Baptist preaching in the desert area of Judea. The gaze of the viewer is initially drawn to the focal point of the composition; St. John. But as you allow your eyes to wander, more and more delightful details are to be discovered. The artist of the present painting wonderfully captured the emotions of the people who are listing to St. John; their hope, their admiration and their intrigue. The color palette which was used is in typical neo-classic style with bright colors. Other famous neoclassic painters were: Giovanni Battista Piranesi and Andrea Appiani (in Italy), Jacques-Louis David and Dominique Ingres (in France), Angelika Kauffmann and Benjamin West (in the UK and the US). Provenance: Collection of Mr. Mazereeuw by who gifted the present painting to the Biblical Museum in Amsterdam, The Netherlands Matthew 3:1-17 NCV About that time John the Baptist began preaching in the desert area of Judea. John said, “Change your hearts and lives because the kingdom of heaven is near.” John the Baptist is the one Isaiah the prophet was talking about when he said: “This is a voice of one who calls out in the desert: ‘Prepare the way for the Lord. Make the road straight for him.’ ” ... Many people came from Jerusalem and Judea and all the area around the Jordan River to hear John. They confessed their sins, and he baptized them in the Jordan River. .... “I baptize you with water to show that your hearts and lives have changed. But there is one coming after me who is greater than I am, whose sandals I am not good enough to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. He will come ready to clean the grain, separating the good grain from the chaff. He will put the good part of the grain into his barn, but he will burn the chaff with a fire that cannot be put out.” At that time Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan River and wanted John to baptize him. But John tried to stop him, saying, “Why do you come to me to be baptized? I need to be baptized by you!” Jesus answered, “Let it be this way for now. We should do all things that are God’s will.” So John agreed to baptize Jesus. As soon as Jesus was baptized, he came up out of the water. Then heaven opened, and he saw God’s Spirit coming down on him like a dove. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love, and I am very pleased with him.” The measurements of the canvas are 60 x 82 cm We offer free standard shipping for this painting to Northern America, United Kingdom and Continental Europe.
