Caravaggio The Supper at Emmaus
The Supper at Emmaus by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio is a masterpiece painted in 1601, and now in the National Gallery in London. It was originally painted for the Roman nobleman Ciriaco Mattei, and late purchased by Cardinal Scipione Borghese. The painting depicts the moment when the resurrected but incognito Jesus, reveals himself to two of his disciples (presumed to be Luke and Cleophas). The moment captures when Christ reveals himself to the astonished disciples, only to soon vanish from their sight (Luke 24: 30-31). Luke wears the scallopshell of a pilgrim. The other apostle wears torn clothes. Luke gesticulates in a perspectively-challenging extension of arms in and out of the frame of reference. The standing groom, forehead smooth and face in darkness, appears oblivious to the event. The painting is unusual for the life-sized figures, the dark and blank background. The table lays out a still-life meal. Like the world these apostles knew, the basket of food teeters perilously over the edge.
