"The Baptism of Christ" by Piero della Francesca

Located in the National Gallery in London, this is the earliest surviving work by Piero della Francesca. Christ stands in a shallow, winding stream as St. John the Baptist pours a small bowl of water over his head. Three colorful angels bear witness to the event – two of them holding hands and one leaning on his companion’s shoulder. Buona visione!
