Reffaello has supposed the moment when the little St. John, coming to visit his playmate, finds the divine babe asleep. The virgin mother of Christ, with a countenance full of sweetness, and a deportment at once expressive of reverence and parental tenderness, gently lifts up the veil by which he was covered, and exposes him to the gaze of the young precursor, who, with bended knees and uplifted hands, seems to lift his infant praises to him, who was to be the 'joy of all nations.'" [P. 5.]
