La Cena in Emmaus

La Cena in Emmaus (The Supper at Emmaus) is an emblematic work by Caravaggio, painted in 1606. This oil-on-canvas painting illustrates a biblical episode taken from the Gospel of Luke. The work depicts the moment when the disciples of Emmaus recognise the risen Christ when he breaks bread at table. The faces of the figures express astonishment, surprise and the revelation of the divine presence. Here, Caravaggio uses his characteristic chiaroscuro style to create striking contrasts between light and dark areas, giving the scene a dramatic intensity. The light highlights Christ's face, illuminating his eyes and his hand as he breaks the bread, while the other parts of the canvas are cast in shadow. The figures are depicted realistically, with human features and intense emotional expressions, creating an emotional connection between the viewer and the biblical event.
