Last Supper Painting on Board
This painting of the Biblical 'Last Supper' is highly typical of the traditional Italian depictions from the Renaissance and earlier. This piece, however, has a particularly ominous tone with the dimly-lit table casting sepia hues across the scene, with the light of Christ's halo illuminating the faces of the disciples with a Caravaggio-esque sense of drama.
