Subject 2: Religious Symbolism: The Last Supper

In order to begin to look at the way religion is used within art work I am first going to look at various symbolisms used throughout art history. The first I shall be looking at is ‘The Last Supper’. The last supper image is iconic. It has been recreated and parody by various artists and media throughout the years. Here are a few of my favourite examples:Giovanni_Mauro_Della_Rovere,_Ultima_cena,_1626
