Saint John baptizes the multitudes in an ideal landscape, framed by a tree trunk on each side. The artist approached this religious work from the scenes of his key patrons.
This piece was meant to make the viewer's religious experience personal and encourage the faithful to imagine the physical horror of Christ's Crucifixion. This was dedicated to the Eucharist.
Divine light from the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove illuminates Christ. Also, three angels in various poses being witnesses of the act. Saint John leans as he pours water onto Christ's head.
In this piece, the use of light and shade, saturated colors, and bold gestures dramatically capture the drama of the Resurrection just like is narrated in the Bible.
The Madonna sits on an ornate throne surrounded by angels, some of them playing musical instruments and singing. Christ sits on her lap touching the lilies, a symbol of purity offered by an angel.
