The Last Supper
About The Last Supper
In the world of Christian art, there are many familiar depictions—the nativity, the crucifixion, the Virgin Mary. But one iconic scene-- Jesus Christ sharing a final meal with His disciples, the momentous Last Supper--has continually captivated artists unlike any other. From Da Vinci’s high renaissance masterpiece to De Champaigne’s powerful baroque composition, painters have attempted to capture the pivotal scene on canvas for centuries. Each painting manages to encapsulate a different element of the powerful moment. The light and color of Grassi’s work reflect the purity and power of Jesus, while the expert facial depictions of Da Vinci’s classic convey the many emotions of the Lord’s disciples. With any piece of Last Supper wall art, the canvas imparts not just the documentation of a historical moment, but the devotion and conviction of both the artist and the beholder.
