The Last Supper by Domenico Ghirlandaio is a Renaissance depiction of the Institution of the Eucharist on a church-sized canvas. As a depiction of the popular Bible scene, this fresco is unique for its “open-room” and vibrant colors. Judas, the betrayer, is shown on the opposite side of the table than Jesus and the other Apostles, showing that Judas did not serve Jesus. The original is a large fresco which graces the refectory of the Franciscan church of Ognissanti in Florence. It was painted in 1480 A.D. and is the second of Ghirlandaio’s three Last Supper Frescoes.
Through the intercession and example of the Apostles, may our love of Jesus in the Eucharist increase through this image. Our Last Supper canvas makes a perfect addition to your living room or parish or is a perfect gift for a dear friend.

Nelson framed canvases are second only to the original masterpieces themselves! Solid wood, deluxe frames and premium stretcher bars support our breathtaking giclÃ©e religious canvases. GiclÃ©e is a french word that means “sprayed ink,” and it refers to our museum-quality printing process whereby 8 different colored inks combine to create millions of colors that are slowly sprayed into canvas material. This high-tech method of art reproduction offers the highest possible fidelity to the original work and results in a clear depiction with colors as good (or sometimes better) than the original painting. Under archival conditions, giclÃ©e canvases have a total color fidelity guarantee for 70-100 years.
For the faithful Catholic that wishes their sacred art to be blessed with holy water: canvases are sparingly water repellent, so while a typical blessing should not damage the canvas whatsoever, those who favor more robust uses of holy water should take caution near the art. 😉
