These are professional interventions, greatly performed and that make it possible to enjoy the work and appreciate it in all its value. This picture is a great example of baroque Spanish painting. The scene is full of people, all of them moving and showing their astonishment and even their fear. The color palette go from the skys subtle ochre tones, where some angels watch the action that takes place on Earth, to the bright blue and red colors of Jesus Christs clothes. The good use of chiaroscuros is another example of the good use of the baroque technique, focused on the contrast between lights and shadows to create strongly theatrical scenes. The famous scene from the Bible appears in the Gospel of John (John, 11). After being told about the death of his friend Lazarus of Betania, Jesus goes to his tomb and tells him to get up. Lazarus rises to the astonishment of the people. In the painting Jesus is accompanied by the apostles, the dead mans sisters and some other people. In the background we can see the sea, and to the left there is a majestic building. Up in the sky, groups of angels and cherubs watch the miracle.
