And it was amazing

I just wrote a whole paper on this painting. I saw it at the Church's Museum of Art a couple months ago. It was pretty much amazing and definitely so much better in person. It is a really good painting with some pretty excellent stories behind it. Like that a lot of the figures were modeled after homeless people; and that the model for Christ at first refused to model, but later agreed; and that all the white is actually the canvas, not paint; and that when the lights shining on the picture fade, Judas (far left) fades away and Christ is emphasized.

But anyway, this is all I've got that is remotely blog-worthy. So enjoy.
