Le Baptême du Christ (1495)
La Résurrection du Christ (1495)
Perugino, a Renaissance painter.
The reason why he is called by a different name than his real name is because he was selected as an honorary citizen of Perugia in 1485.
His achievements are so great that he is famous for his work on the murals of the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel.
He was also the teacher of the young Raphael and had a great influence on him.
These works in the Rouen Museum were commissioned by St. Peter’s Basilica in Perugia.
