Last Supper: Interpretation by Modern Indian Artists
This paper aims at summarizing the development both in the evolution of style and form of representation of Last
Supper by six Modern Indian artists. The Modern Indian artists sought essentially to indigenize the Christian content. A
more personal interpretation was given by the artists like Angelo Da Fonseca, Jamini Roy, Sakti Burman, F N Souza, M F
Husain and many more. These artists took the motif and mutated it into symbols of personal experiences and suffering, of
inequity and rooted them solidly in the Indian context.This paper also analyses the works in the context of style, colour, and
medium of the art.
