by Marilyn Aronberg Lavin


In this study, she brings her powerful analytic skills and formidable erudition to bear on Piero's early painting, "The Baptism of Christ" (1436-39?) and elucidates it in astonishing and fascinating detail. She contends that, although it is nominally a celebration of the Baptism, the painting references all three feasts commemorated on January 6: Epiphany, Theophany, and Bethany, .

The Baptism of Christ is a painting by the Italian Renaissance master Piero della Francesca

The Baptism of Christ is a painting by the Italian Renaissance master Piero della Francesca. Painted in egg tempera on two panels of poplar wood, the dating is controversial – some give it a very early date, perhaps 1439; others much later, around 1460. It is held by the National Gallery, London. The panel was commissioned presumably some time about 1440 by the Camaldolese Monastery of Sansepolcro in Tuscany, now Sansepolcro Cathedral.

The Flagellation of Christ (probably 1468–1470) is a painting by Piero della Francesca in the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche in Urbino, Italy.

Kenneth Clark placed The Flagellation in his personal list of the best ten paintings, calling it "the greatest small painting in the world".

Christ’s baptism, as recorded in the Gospels, was likely to have involved full immersion in the river Jordan, but it was more usually depicted like this. Piero may have been inviting us to imagine we are standing in the river, looking straight through the clear water. The mirror-like surface of the water in the distance reflects the wooded mountains, the glassy effect contrasting with the otherwise chalky look of the egg tempera paint Piero used. Piero made this picture for the Camaldolese Abbey of his hometown of Borgo Sansepolcro – the walls and turrets in the distance are probably supposed to represent the town.
