This icon of St John the Baptist, painted by Konstantinos Tzanes, stands among Italo-Greek icons in the Collection for its excellent artistic quality. It makes a strong impression by a meticulous rendering of volume and sophisticated colour scheme of the saint's face. A similar approach to rendering human faces can also be seen in later icons made by Greek painters.
