    “The Last Supper” is a late 15th-century mural painting by Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci:

    “The Last Supper” portrays the reaction given by each apostle when Jesus said one of them would betray him. All twelve apostles have different reactions to the news, with various degrees of anger and shock. The apostles were identified by their names, using an unsigned, mid-sixteenth-century fresco copy of Leonardo’s Cenacolo. – Wiki

    Leonardo reportedly used the likenesses of people in and around Milan as inspiration for the painting’s figures. The convent’s prior complained to Sforza of Leonardo’s “laziness” as he wandered the streets to find a criminal to base Judas on. Leonardo responded that if he could find no one else, the prior would make a suitable model.

    While the painting was being executed, Leonardo’s friend, the mathematician Luca Pacioli, called it “a symbol of man’s burning desire for salvation”.
