This has been a very challenging assignment. There have been multiple artists that have done their own interpretations of Scenes from the Life of St John. Another challenge is that there are multiple ways to spell Bartolomeo di Giovann, some with do instead of di, and some putting spelling his first name as Bartolommeo.
Scenes from the Life of St John the Baptist by Bartolomeo di Giovanni, painted in 1490-95, is an example of a religious painting which demonstrates the technique of tempera on poplar panel, 74 x 150 cm. Religious paintings were categorized as historical paintings and therefore the most prestigious genre by the French Académie de peinture et de sculpture. Religious paintings depict incredibly detailed biblical scenes and generally large in size.
Within this one painting there are multiple scenes regarding the life of St. John the Baptist. It takes nearly a Bible scholar to interpret the many scenes, along with a little imagination. The particular panel that was looked upon possibly focuses on the birth and what occurred pre-birth. His father was a priest, and it is proposed that man man wearing the green robe with pink shirt is his father Zechariah, an elderly man. There is even a scene of Zechariah and his expecting wife, Elizabeth, talking to Biblical characters Mary and Joseph, in the lower right. To the lower left is possibly to presentation of John to a priest to be circumcised on the eighth day after birth. The furthest scene to the right shows John by the Jordan River beginning his ministry. One note about the characters in this collection of scenes, the artist Bartolomeo di Giovanni does put ‘halos’ on what he determines as members of the holy family, whereas, others do not have halos.
