Project Description

Last Supper
1966
46 X 46 inches

“Acrylic paint had just come onto the market and I began using it, as I had been doing with oils, in a rather fluid state. I was not yet using modeling paste or the palette knife with acrylic. Gold and white are my colors for the divine presence. Christ, who is central, gives himself to the apostles so that they also take on the color and light of the divine. On His extreme right there is Judas who did not take on the light-someness of divinity. Judas is a darksome figure, hardly formed, as though the painting was of Christ with eleven apostles. This was one of my very early nonfigurative paintings.“ K. CHAPMAN
