The condition is excellent!
In its frame gilt with gold leaf
Religious subject rather rarely broached by Louis Audibert
The composition orders a scene with strong theatricality
Christ and Saint John the Baptist stand out by the foreground that is dedicated to them, and by the dark circles that define them, in the manner of Georges Rouault, whose work is clearly inspired
