The Baptism and the Descent from the Cross of Christ

Two paintings on copper representing religious episodes dating from the 18th century.

The origin of copper painting for easel painting is historically linked to the development of the art of enamel but especially of engraving (15th century).

Copper painting reached its peak between the 16th and 18th centuries.

The work representing the Baptism of Christ is easily recognizable.

He writes in the Gospel according to St. Luke:

"Jesus, who had been baptized, was praying, the sky opened, and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form, like a dove"

The artist has captured this moment perfectly. The viewer can identify the dove coming from the sky, in a white halo of light.
