St. John the baptist is a high renaissance oil painting on walnut wood by leonardo da vinci. Probably completed from 1513 to 1516, it is believed to be his final painting and is now exhibited at the musee du louvre in paris, france. The piece depicts st. John the baptist in isolation. Through use of chiaroscuro, the figure appears to emerge from the shadowy background. St. John is dressed in pelts, has long curly hair, and is smiling in an enigmatic manner reminiscent of leonardo's famous mona lisa. He holds a reed cross in his left hand while his right hand points up toward heaven like st anne in leonardo's burlington house cartoon.Leonardo da vinci (15 april 1452 - 2 may 1519) was an italian man who lived in the time of the renaissance.
