The Sacrament of the Last Supper, c.1955
Twelve pentagons and twelve apostles, as Dalí said: “…communion must be symmetric.” "The Sacrament of the Last Supper" was painted using oil on canvas, in 1955. An art collector called Chester Dale commissioned the painting . Whilst he was enormously pleased with the painting, some crictics viewed it as a mediocre rendering of a much-used subject. The subject is Christ's Last Supper, which has been painted by many artists over the centuries. Amongst these renditions is a version by one of Dali's favorite artists, Leonardo da Vinci. Like the Leonardo version, Dali's "The Sacrament of the Last Supper" shows Christ sitting centrally at a table with the disciples around him and in the background, windows look on to a landscape, in Dali's case it is that of a bay near his home of Port Lligat. The figure of Christ is transparent, and above him the arms and chest of a man appear in the sky, suggesting that he is already ascending to heaven. An aspect of the painting that caused controversy was the fact that Christ was given Gala's features. Dali had already portrayed Gala as the Madonna in several earlier paintings, and in 1958 he was to show the image of Gala looking down on Christ as he ascends to Heaven, in the painting "The Ascension of Christ."

Art Prints
All of our prints are produced on a quality paper and either supplied by one of the world’s leading art publishers or printed in our own in-house facilities. Most prints are on a thick (120 pound or higher) stock of paper and printed using a lithographic or serigraphic printing process.
Laminated Art Prints
Laminating your print or poster is an inexpensive and easy way to protect it from fading, dirt and finger prints. Both sides of the poster are laminated for maximum protection.
Gallery Wrapped Canvas Art
With the gallery wrap method, the image wraps around the edge, and continues back toward the wall. The art wraps around the sides of the canvas creating a gallery style look. This canvas treatment is ideal for seamless designs, abstract images, or imagery that has a central focus.
Museum Wrapped Canvas Art
With the museum wrap method, the image goes to the edge of the surface with plain white canvas exposed on the sides. This shows well with any image and can be hung on your wall with the sides left white, or the sides can be painted with one of our 18 custom colors to match or complement the colors of the piece.
Framed Canvas
Framing a canvas is the best of both worlds. You can still see the texture of the canvas as well as embellishing the sides with your choice of high quality frames. The canvas itself gets a museum wrapped treatment in order to allow for the widest assortment of frames. A framed canvas' finished thickness is dependent on the depth of the frame that you choose.
Canvas Brushstrokes
Brushstrokes can be applied to your canvas using a clear acrylic gel that adds additional texture to the canvas, helping to recreate the feel of the original painting. For most canvas pieces, regular brushstrokes will look most natural and true to the original, but heavy brushstrokes are also available to add more texture if desired.
Framed Art
All of our framing is done in-house by expert craftsman. We use quality moldings from the industry’s leading suppliers and custom frame each piece when your order is placed.
Mats for Custom Framing
We offer a wide selection of vibrant colors for our pH neutral mats and allow you to choose from various mat widths, depending on the size of your print. The option to choose one, two or three mats for your print allows you to further customize the look of your finished piece.
Glazing Options
To finished your framed piece, we offer both glass and plexi-glass options, depending on the size of your print. Our standard options in both glass and plexi-glass are our most budget friendly way to protect your prints. We also offer non-glare options to greatly reduce reflection and glare from lights and for 99% UV protection and amazing clarity, choose our Museum Glass option.
