Supper at Emmaus

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.
