At the meal, which occurred during the traditional time for celebrating the Jewish feast of the Passover , he gave them the dramatic news that one of them would betray him.
Not surprisingly, these works often embody various cultural assumptions or beliefs of their creators and of the society in which they were created.
This article examines the nature of some of those assumptions, and highlights various instances where they have been challenged, either by the creation of alternative depictions, or by alternative interpretations of the traditional view.
The article covers early variations in the image in Catholic Italy, transformations of the image in Lutheran Germany, and its customisation in selected colonised communities in Latin America and the Pacific.
It also examines attempts to influence the nature of the image by various cultural or social groups, such as church reformers or feminists, and the role of the image in modern western culture. These viewers have become so familiar with this drama-charged image , and so accustomed to the iconography Supper market Christian art in general, that they would hardly regard it as a cross-cultural work at all.
They might even need to be reminded that it is based on an event which involved Jewish people and which occurred in Palestine.
So, for example, the faces generally appear Italian — not surprising given that Leonardo sought his models for the painting in the streets of Milan.
The clothing adopted is a vaguely classical toga-and-cloak style which bears little relation to traditional Jewish clothing . The setting itself appears to be more suited to a Renaissance palazzo than the house of a friend.
The scenery glimpsed in the background looks more quintessentially Tuscan than Palestinian. And the food has been transformed from the traditional Passover lamb to what has recently been interpreted as fish and the decidedly non-kosher grilled eels — complete with orange slices — a popular dish in Renaissance Italy .
Even the rectangular shape of the table, and the placement of the sitters along one side, is an anachronism. This issue, prosaic as it may sound, tends to assume some significance in later Last Supper representations, so it is appropriate at this point to consider it in some detail.
In virtually all depictions of the Last Supper before the 12th century, the table is round or D-shaped : This shape was seen as embodying a special element of fraternal fellowship .
It also corresponded more closely with the Jewish practice of conducting Passover meals round low tables, or no tables at all, with diners semi-reclining on low lounges . In contrast, the long table shown by Leonardo was not commonly used for meals until the Middle Ages . Furthermore, even after it had been adopted, the practice of seating diners along only one side, with servants attending to their duties from the other side, was reserved for particularly wealthy households, hardly a likely scenario for Jesus and the apostles .
It was convenient for a painter who needed to depict the faces of everyone present . For one thing, it reflected the seating pattern of the monks as they ate their daily meal at long refectory tables. For another, the bold horizontal line of the table, together with the receding perspectives of the architectural setting, helped create a convincing illusion that the action in the painting was taking place in a mezzanine attached to the refectory itself.
The gradual eclipse of the round table in traditional Last Supper representations may also have had a deeper significance. Starting in the Middle Ages, the position of the church altar table — which of course represented the table on which the Last Supper was conducted — began to become more withdrawn and physically remote from the laity.
This move was associated with a greater clerical dominance in worship and less frequent communion . The painting therefore reflected the wishes and attitudes of the Christian culture in which Leonardo was working.
Christians were understandably anxious to see the Last Supper in their own image, and to remove unwanted reminders of the foreign character of the actual event. Launched by Martin Luther, the radical new beliefs of the Protestants rapidly spread throughout northern Germany, Switzerland, England and Scotland.
The Inquisition was a Church tribunal that had originally been set up in the 13th century to conduct heresy trials.
These frequently involved inventive forms of torture, and the penalties, originally limited to excommunication, were progressively extended to flogging, imprisonment and death by burning.
The orthodoxy which the Inquisition was charged with enforcing extended to artworks, which the Church saw as a potent propaganda weapons for the ideological battle ahead . The timing of this proved to be particularly unfortunate for the painter Veronese.
Inhe executed a commission to paint a massive Last Supper for the convent of S. Giovanni e Paolo in Venice. In keeping with his customary bravura style, Veronese depicted the scene as a luxurious feast, set against a magnificent architectural backdrop, and populated it with a variety of unlikely characters including a dog, a servant with a nose-bleed, a jester with a parrot on his wrist, an apostle picking his teeth with a fork, buffoons, dwarfs and — perhaps most bizarre of all — German mercenaries holding halberds Fig 3.
Not surprisingly, this defence, though eloquent, was completely unsuccessful and Veronese was ordered to correct his painting by removing the offending characters within three months.
As it happened, Veronese did no such thing, but solved the problem by simply renaming the work as Feast in the House of Levi.Sunday Suppers at Lucques: Seasonal Recipes from Market to Table [Suzanne Goin, Teri Gelber] on kaja-net.com *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.
