The Last Supper
(La Ultima Cena)
Painted: 1560s .
ORIGINAL SIZE: 45.6" x 75.1"

This work is one of the most characteristic of this Valencian painter. As in the rest of his paintings, this has an ecclesiastical content. It shows a great artist, whose mastery of colour can be compared with the Flemish painters. The scenes are often beatific and convensional, with figures which represent calmness and spiritual peace.

A later painter, Francisco Ribalta, copied this painting.
