The master of Valencia was very popular in Spain, he worked under Lombard, Florentine and Netherlandish influence. The figure of Christ of this painting is repeated in other paintings of the artist ('La Cena' in the Prado, and 'Salvador' in Valencia). This painting was probably the door of a tabernacle, on the reverse golden ornamentation.
