  1. We just saw this at the National Museum in London! It is huge, and quite fantastic. One of the things the guide pointed out was the intimate gesture of Christ 'chucking' John the Baptist under the chin. It was also suggested that this is not Saint Anne, mother of Mary, but instead Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist. Interesting.
