The Last Supper


Description Provenance Credit
Description Christ and twelve apostles are seated along one side and at the ends of a rectangular table covered with a cloth. Judas is at the extreme right. Set forth on the table are the Paschal Lamb and numerous utensils, and two wine-ewers stand on the tessellated floor. A dog gnaws on a bone in the foreground. The source was the engraving by Marcantonio Raimondi known to the French cataloguers under the improper name of "Cène aux pieds," because the feet show beneath the table cloth.
