The Resurrection (detail)

1596-1600
Oil on canvas
Museo del Prado, Madrid

Christ is shown in a blaze of glory, striding through the air and holding the white banner of victory over death. The figure of Christ is very similar in pose and design to the sculpted figure of the resurrected Christ which the artist had made a few years earlier to crown the tabernacle in the chapel of the Tavera Hospital.
