Goback 10 / 11 Forward

Title: St John the Baptist
Description:
Francesco del Cossa (c. 1430 c. 1477)
Griffoni Polyptych: St John the Baptist
Oil on panel, 1473
112 x 55 cm
Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan, Italy


In his paintings Cossa shows a special interest in rocky landscapes and in the stones, carved and otherwise, of which architecture is built. This affinity emerges behind the standing figure of John the Baptist in a landscape of rocky pinnacles, open arcades, and natural bridges supporting turreted castles and domed churches stacked in impossible positions.
