El Salvador leads the series of the 12 apostles, painted with great skill in the foreground and captivating the viewer with their dematerialised and highly expressive faces.The figure is presented facing the front, in the style of the old icons, carrying out a Greek-style blessing with his left hand resting on a globe of the world. The version from the Museo del Greco is considered to be the finest of those that have survived.
