Apocalypse: John, Letter to Ephesus -- John, nimbed, is seated, right hand holding pen on scroll on lap, end of the scroll grasped by left hand. Open book, inkpot, and pen-case are on ground next to him. He looks toward Christ, rays as cross nimbus, standing, extending right hand toward John. Seven candlesticks are behind Christ; four or five animals surround base of foremost candlestick. All are on island in landscape.
