24th JUNE - BIRTH OF JOHN THE BAPTIST


 Caravaggio painted several images of St. John The Baptist, employing several different models.  These are just four of them.

Effectively, St-John-Baptist is our Patron Saint, and it's the French-Canadians' National Day today!

Since it's already Monday morning in Australia, let me wish you, Patrick, a wonderful week!

Beautiful models of John the Baptist. Caravaggio obviously had an eye to masculine beauty! Et bonne fin de fête à nos frères québecois!
