The Eucharistic Christ

1520 - 1530. Oil on panel. Not on display

The composition derives from a lost work by Leonardo repeated by Yáñez on two other occasions with some variants. Here he includes a chalice and a consecrated Host, a Eucharistic reference that enjoyed a lengthy tradition in Spanish and particularly Valencian art. The emphasis on anatomical definition, subtle colour and a unifying light are characteristic of the artist at this period.
