The Last Supper

Staatliche Museen, Berlin

This narrow predella panel was among other widely scattered panels of the high altar of the Florentine monastic church of San Gaggio (also known as Santa Caterina al Monte). Christ and the apostles are fitted within a boxlike space. Judas is spaced "below the salt," at the far side of the table from Christ and John, as witness to the latter's despair upon learning of the impending betrayal.
