’Last Supper.’

	The third of twenty panels depicting the Passion of Christ in the Chapelle des Pénitents Blancs at La Tour shows Jesus and his disciples during the Last Supper. St. John is held in an awkward embrace that seems more appropriate for a wrestling match!
The fresco was executed in 1492 on the chapel's left wall by Currand Bravesi and Guirard Nadal, two of the so-called 'peintres primitifs niçois' (primitive painters of Nice).
