A painting by a young Velázquez. He may have been inspired by a Caravaggio painting on the same subject: the arm gesture of the man in the foreground is very similar.

The painting shows the astonishment of the two followers of the dead Jesus when they realize who their supper guest is. They've been talking with him all day.
