There is no New Testament source for this scene, but two angels are described at the tomb of Christ on the morning of the Resurrection (John 20: 11-13).

The painting dates from about 1617-18. Two preparatory drawings for the picture are known (Windsor and Copenhagen) and the composition was frequently copied.
