Oil on canvas painting portraying Juan the Palafox, first Bishop of Puebla de los Ángeles, in Mexico and, later, bishop of Osma (Spain).
It is a centralized composition in which the Bishop, wearing an Episcopal costume, almost completely fills the painting in width and in height. On the right side of the painting, next to the lower corner, one may see a table covered with a towel and above it there is a cross with an image of a crucified Christ.
