In 2012, the committee published an interim edition of the Roman Pontifical, including new translations of certain texts drawn from the revised Roman Missal. I was commissioned to create a series of five color illustrations for this book, including this one of the Last Supper. <br><br> <center><a href="http://danielmitsui.tripod.com/00_misc/pope.jpg" target="_blank"><img border="0" alt="POPE" src="http://danielmitsui.tripod.com/00_misc/small_pope.jpg"></a></center> <br><br> I drew Christ at table with His Apostles, blessing bread and wine. Judas Iscariot is the one Apostle without a halo. Two angels hold a patterned backdrop with eucharistic symbols on it: chalices, grapevines and pelicans in their piety. <br><br> In the border, above and below the central image, appear four Old Testament prefigurements of the Last Supper: the Sacrifice of Melchizedek, the fall of Manna in the desert, the Paschal Lamb and Elijah fed by an angel. In the left border Christ is shown washing his apostles&rsquo; feet; above this is its prefigurement, the Hospitality of Abraham. In the right, Christ is shown in Gethsemani, with the men sent to arrest him falling down. This is prefigured by the Fall of the Rebel Angels. Below these the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins is illustrated. <br><br> Between these scenes are twelve prophets. In the corners, the words <i>Hoc est enim Corpus Meum</i> are written in stylized letters, surrounded by a millefleur pattern. <br><br> 15th century panel paintings, tapestries and prints influenced this drawing. Artists whose work I studied when drawing it include Dieric Bouts and I.A.M. of Zwolle. <br><br><br><br> Medium: Drawing, color ink on Bristol board <br> Dimensions: 8 1/2" &times; 11" <br> Year: 2011 <br><br>The original drawing was made on private commission. <br><br><hr><br> An open-edition gicl&eacute;e print of this drawing is available for $88. You may use the button below to pay via PayPal, debit card or credit card. Be sure to confirm the shipping address. <br><br> The original drawing included liturgical scenes specific to the Roman Pontifical; the words <i>Hoc est enim Corpus Meum</i> I drew separately and edited into the print (shown above) in their places. <br><br> <form target="paypal" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post"> <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick"> <input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="HSH5ALAQDSWBA"> <input type="hidden" name="on0" value="Price including shipping:">Price including shipping:<br><select name="os0"> <option value="Ship within USA">Ship within USA $92.50 USD</option> <option value="Ship outside USA">Ship outside USA $97.00 USD</option> </select><br> <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD"> <input type="image" src="http://danielmitsui.tripod.com/00_misc/add_to_cart.jpg" border="0" name="submit" alt="ADD to CART"> </form> <br> See <a href="http://danielmitsui.tripod.com/00_pages/order.html" target="_blank">this page</a> for additional ordering instructions and general information.
