This painting shows Christ and his twelve disciples seated at a round table for the Last Supper. Christ raises his hand to consecrate the items before them—a chalice of wine and a loaf of bread, partially sliced to resemble the Eucharistic wafers of the Mass. Biblical accounts make it possible to identify some of the disciples, including the youthful, curly haired John, who rests his head on Christ's bosom, and the traitorous Judas, the figure in yellow who furrows his brow.
