LAST SUPPER
DRAWING by DANIEL MITSUI


LAST SUPPER


I drew Christ at table with His Apostles, blessing bread and wine. Judas Iscariot is the one Apostle without a halo. Two angels hold a patterned backdrop with eucharistic symbols on it: chalices, grapevines and pelicans in their piety.

In the border, above and below the central image, appear four Old Testament prefigurements of the Last Supper: the Sacrifice of Melchizedek, the fall of Manna in the desert, the Paschal Lamb and Elijah fed by an angel. In the left border Christ is shown washing his apostles’ feet; above this is its prefigurement, the Hospitality of Abraham. In the right, Christ is shown in Gethsemani, with the men sent to arrest him falling down. This is prefigured by the Fall of the Rebel Angels. Below these the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins is illustrated.

Between these scenes are twelve prophets. In the corners, the words Hoc est enim Corpus Meum are written in stylized letters, surrounded by a millefleur pattern.

15th century panel paintings, tapestries and prints influenced this drawing. Artists whose work I studied when drawing it include Dieric Bouts and I.A.M. of Zwolle.
