Supper at Emmaus1506
Panel, 122 x 141 cm
Gallerie dell'Accademia, Venice
In this painting, taut physiognomy, distraught colour, and popular theatrically mingles Carpaccio and German art. The breaking of bread by the resurrected, undisclosed Christ renews the sacrament of the Eucharist in the unpretentious but festively decorated tavern.
