Juan CORREA DE VIVAR
(Mascaraque, 1510 – 1566, San Miguel)
Arrest of Christ
Oil on panel, 92.5 x 77 cm
Juan Correa de Vivar was a Spanish master who studied in Burgundy. He was deeply influenced by Raphael. This exceptional and well preserved work was painted by Correa da Vivar towards the 1530s, soon after he left the workshop of Juan de Borgoña. “The Arrest of Chrsit” was probably one of the missing panels from the altarpiece depicting scenes from the life of Christ.
