Rembrandt's first Supper at Emmaus. It shows the exact moment when the two men realize that the person who has been accompanying them on their journey to Emmaus is their deceased master, not just some passer-by. One of the disciples falls on his knees, another recoils.

This early work shows Rembrandt's skill in handling light and darkness.
