"Temptations of Christ" by Botticelli

“The Temptations of Christ” is one of three frescoes painted by Botticelli in the Sistine Chapel in little less than a year (1481-1482). The painting surprisingly sets the actual temptations of power, pride, and possession in the background, while in the foreground, Botticelli depicts a young man healed of leprosy by Jesus presenting himself to a high priest for purification.
