About this work


Bible. N.T. Matthew 26.17-35; Mark 14.12-25; Luke 22.7-38. John 13. Everyone is in an attitude of prayer. The lack of any recognisably Christ-like figure, together with the presence of the man on the right bearing a book, indicate rather that the scene is a commemoration of the last supper than the event itself. On the table there is a small amount of bread, a metal dish and cutlery, but no wine
