Note: Despite the clear presence of both saints, this work is recorded in the catalogues of 1866-67 and 1913 as if it only depicted the Evangelist. However, in the inventory of the works which the Junta ceded to the Academy (no. 14) it is entitled correctly. It is badly damaged, the image of the Baptist is seriously torn.
