The twelve disciples present at the Last Supper were Bartholomew, James, son of Alphaeus, Andrew, Judas Iscariot, Peter, John, Thomas, Philip, Matthew and Simon the Zealot. The beloved disciple, commonly identified with John the Evangelist, is mentioned in John 13:23-24 as having his head resting on Jesus' chest during the Last Supper.
Eduard von Steinle (1810-1886) was an Austrian painter and member of the Nazarene movement. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and is known for his historical paintings. The Nazarene movement was adopted by a group of early 19th-century German Romantic painters who aimed to revive spirituality in art. The name Nazarene came from their desire to return to the purity of the Christian art of the Middle Ages.
