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.
