Lamb of God (Latin, "Agnus Dei") is an oil painting by Francisco de Zurbarán. The Lamb of God is an allusion to Christ’s title as recorded in John’s Gospel (John 1: 29) when John the Baptist describes Jesus as ‘The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the World.’
Francisco de Zurbarán was a Spanish painter. He is known primarily for his religious paintings depicting monks, nuns, and martyrs, and for his still-lifes. Zurbarán gained the nickname Spanish Caravaggio, owing to the forceful, realistic use of chiaroscuro in which he excelled.
