(b. 1541, Candia, d. 1614, Toledo)

The Risen Christ (frontal view)

Polychrome wood, height 45 cm
Hospital Tavera, Toledo

This figure clearly goes back to a design by El Greco, even though he himself may not have executed it. In Spain, every sculpture was given polychrome treatment, and the present figure of Christ still bears the original paint application.
