The Last Supper

The Last Supper

by Nikolay Gay

The Last Supper as a subject is indeed one of the most popular for paintings and the general arts as a whole. Never mind Leonardo's representation, the one above is unique, unconventional and powerful. Not suprisingly, it was painted by a Russian, for who could better fuse despair with dignity without taxing the image of its elegance...

Undoubtedly, the most solemn, sober and sincere portrayal of the Last Supper I have ever come across.

Wow, good find. This is rare in that it infuses a hopelessness to the scene rather than the usual depictions that always confused me with their cheerfulness.

I drink to the health of the artist who painted the picture worthy of Gay, because I love all that is "sublime and beautiful."

Sublime in its beauty, beautiful in its despair - great art in a nutshell.

Yeah, what a brilliant find! I have never seen this before. The composition is perfect, and the light is so stunning...
