Abstract
En esta ocasión, se analizan diversas pinturas realizadas por Juan de Valdés Leal con los diferentes episodios de la Pasión de Cristo, poniéndolas en relación con dos de los elementos más característicos de la cultura sevillana del momento en que se llevaron a cabo: la devoción y el teatro. Ambas se combinan además en las diversas celebraciones de carácter penitencial de gran arraigo en la sociedad hispalense del siglo XVII, como son la Semana Santa y el viacrucis, planteándose una posible permeabilidad artística entre estas fiestas y las representaciones pictóricas.
This essay analyses various paintings by Juan de Valdés Leal depicting different episodes from the Passion of Christ, relating them to two of the most representative elements of Sevillian culture at the time they were made: devotion and theatre. Both are also combined in the various penitential celebrations that were deeply established in Sevillian society in the 17th century, such as Holy Week and the Stations of the Cross, suggesting a possible artistic permeability between these festivities and the pictorial representations.
