This compostion is clearly indebted to Piero della Francesca’s Baptism of Christ (1450s, National Gallery, London).  The National Gallery Baptism had a special significance for Monnington - it was, he later recalled, on first seeing this work  as a young teenager, that he decided his vocation was to be an artist.
