He is supported by an angel clothed in pink, who envelops Him in a white cloth. The background is of gold, tooled with gothic motifs. Paintings by Valencian and other Spanish masters working in the reign of Ferdinand and Isabella are less often associated with a known individual than with a fictitious name.
