The text held by the saint comes from Matthew 3: 10 where St John identified Christ as the Saviour with the words 'behold the lamb of God'. There is a very abraded coat of arms lower left. This painting has recently been plausibly attributed to the Master of the Miller Tondo, now identified as Arcangelo di Jacopo del Sellaio. Having inherited the studio of his father, Jacopo, he continued to work in his manner which was based on that of Botticelli and Lippi.
