Hand painted on wood panel, this 19th century Russian icon depicts The Last Supper on Holy Thursday, the night before Jesus’ arrest and eventual crucifixion. Jesus sits in the center, hand raised in blessing, surrounded by his 12 disciples. The chalice of wine sits on the center of the table with the bread to the left, soon to consecrated by Jesus, initiating the sacrament of communion which is central to the Christian Liturgy. An architectural setting fills the background and creates a context for the Passover meal. Icons like this one served to inspire and educate early Christians with imagery from the Old Testament and the Gospels. Inspiring for its beauty, history and narrative, it will enhance any collection.
