The crucified Christ appears to Saint Teresa of Avila

1629. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

In The Interior Castle Saint Teresa wrote that: "The Lord represented himself to her, just after she had received Communion, in the form of shining splendour, beauty, and majesty, as he was after his resurrection, and told her that now it was time that she consider as her own what belonged to him and that he would take care of what was hers." Together with its pair (P8153), this canvas is an interesting example of Cano’s early work when he was working in Seville and favoured a naturalist style.
