This work was created in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts to produce a series of Andy's most iconic works.
Andy Warhol's Sixty Last Suppers (1986) is an outstanding example from the artist’s great final painting series. Executed near the end of his life, the monumental piece — the largest painting by the American Pop artist ever to come to auction — takes up the themes of religion and loss that were so key to his work.
The idea for a group of works based on Leonardo’s Renaissance masterpiece was proposed to Warhol in 1984 by Milan-based gallerist Alexander Iolas. Warhol leaped at the idea of putting his own stamp on one of the best-known images in the world, and produced an exhaustive series of variations — some freehand, some showing outlines, some, as in this example, using a photostat of the oil painting as the source image for a silkscreen. In all, Warhol would make over 100 different renditions of the Last Supper, 22 of which were displayed in 1986 in a space opposite the Santa Maria Delle Grazie church, home of Leonardo’s original. Viewed by an estimated 30,000 people, the works took Milan by storm.
