Alvise's modeling of the human body reflects the influence of Antonello da Messina and represents an advance over the work of other members of his family. Here the figure of the risen Christ is directly imitated from Antonello's St Sebastian, once in the Venetian church of San Giuliano. Alvise's borrowings were later adapted by other painters working in the Venetian territories, such as Cima da Conegliano.
