The Last Supper by Tintoretto is a prime example of the transition phase from High Renaissance artwork to the Baroque. Though the subject matter is still primarily religious, the figures have become more commonplace than they were before. The contrast between light and shadow here is a precursor to that brought to us by Gentileschi and Caravaggio. The emotion here is very high, something that is not normally seen in the docile figures of the Renaissance. Though this may be a Last Supper piece, it is certainly not something you would have seen from Leonardo, who is best remembered for his work, though perhaps not rightfully so.

The light!
