“The Supper at Emmaus” by Caravaggio (1606)
Caravaggio baffles with the predominant darkness (i.e., scuro) of the contours in this warm and intimate chiaroscuro tableau that captures a very special and intimate moment: a dinner in the life of the Resurrected Christ after his encounter with two of his disciples – who had not recognized him – on the way to Emmaus.
The lighter effects (i.e., chiaro) put the focus on the three table mates, the language of the hands of each commensal and the single expressions.
Teaching and learning are two of the most important processes that accompany man throughout his entire life.
Both processes occur in all walks of life, although some occupations require lifelong study and commitment and this is the case for the legal profession.
