A masterpiece of French Rococo art, this painting is a remarkable example of Boucher's exquisite craftsmanship and intimate understanding of religious themes. In this visually stunning piece, Saint John the Baptist, robed in a humble loin cloth, is depicted reclining on vivid red drapery beneath a tree by a gentle stream. His hands are reverently clasped with a gentle lamb by his side, and an emblematic cross rests nearby, symbolizing his pivotal role in the New Testament. Above, the heavens are adorned with seven cherubic infant angels' heads, beautifully drawn and seemingly observing the peaceful scene from the clouds. The soft colors and exquisite detail lend an ethereal quality to this piece, inviting contemplation and reflection. This particular work of art was originally painted by Boucher for his patron, Madame de Pompadour, the influential mistress of Louis XV. Intended to appeal to the religious faction at court, she commissioned such devotional pieces for the chapels in her numerous residences. This depiction of Saint John, her patron saint, was specifically ordered for a chapel in the Capuchin Convent in Paris, where she maintained an apartment and attended regular retreats.
