Description The subject is taken from Luke 24.28-32; it is a moment when the risen Christ joined Cleopas and another Apostle on the way to Emmaus. He talked to them, but they did not recognise Him until they stopped to have a supper in a tavern and He broke the bread. Salvator Rosa (1615-1673) was an Italian Baroque painter, poet, and printmaker, active in Naples, Rome, and Florence. He is considered a forerunner of Romantic landscapists.
