This picture has been traditionally known as St Joan but this title does not fit the subject of a nude youth holding a crucifix made from a bull-rush. The earliest recorded use of this title seems to be a sale in 1937, twenty years after the artist's death. It is more likely that the title is a misreading of St John and that the subject is the youth of John the Baptist - the rushes symbolising the River Jordan. Whatever the subject of the painting, it dates from a very early period in the artist's career, probably the early 1870s, perhaps even predating his debut at the Royal Academy summer exhibition in 1874.
