The image of Christ crucified appears alongside the donor´s of this work, on a neutral background.

Notable is the almost sculptural appearance of Christ, who wears the Crown of thorns and a loincloth, on which Zurbarán displays his technical prowess in handling the range of whites. The strongly contrasted light on both the donor's face and the body of Christ add depth to the composition and link its technique to tenebrism.
