Holy Face of Jesus is a 1586–1595 painting by El Greco (La Santa Faz) - On his way to crucifixion towards Calvary, Jesus Christ, carrying his cross, falls for the first time. A young woman driven by compassion, bends over offering him the veil she wears on her head. Jesus takes it, wipes away the sweat and blood, and then gives it back to her. Veronica is astonished to find out that the Saviour’s face is miraculously imprinted on the same piece of cloth, giving our painting its title.

Based on this incident, the legend of St. Veronica is born, which became popular in the 15th century and inspired many great painters, such as Dürer, Bosch, Pontormo and Correggio. Therefore, when Greco decided in 1577 to approach the subject of the Holy Face, he joined an already well-established tradition in the Catholic iconography.
