Supper at Emmaus, Jan Havicksz. Steen, c. 1665 - c. 1668

oil on canvas, h 134cm × w 104cm. More details

On their way to Emmaus, two Disciples unexpectedly encounter Christ. At first they do not recognise him. As they sit to eat and they break bread, they realise who he is. And at that moment, he disappears. That is the moment Jan Steen depicts here: Christ’s shade is just visible on the left beneath the arbour.
