Ascribed by some to Leonardo, this painting in the Louvre was transferred to canvas in the 19th century. Others attribute it to Cesare da Sesto, to Bernazzano, to Francesco Melzi, or, more loosely, to a Lombard painter.

Leonardo da Vinci

1510-15
Musee du Louvre, Paris
                 

Taking into account the deterioration, which makes it hard to judge, the naturalistic background lacks the descriptive and symbolic density of Leonardo's landscapes.
As with the analogous gesture of the St John, the pointing index finger suggests that the subject may be identified as the Baptist.

 

Andrea del Sarto, Bacchus,
middle of second decade of 16th century, Worcester.
Del Sarto, too, combined sacred and profane iconography

           




The Thorn Removal, Musei Capitolini, Rome.
 Leonardo's late production reverted to antique models.
This pose, adopted also by Michelangelo for a Nude in the Sistine Chapel,
returns in the Bathing Girl of Hayez di Brera.
