We’ve provided the 3 images below to show how completely differently, yet still brilliantly, 3 very different artists have handled the same subject. And that is what ultimately makes the arts in some ways so much more interesting than science.

The Sacrament of the Last Supper is a painting by Salvador Dalí. Completed in 1955, after nine months of work, it remains one of his most popular compositions. Since its arrival at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. in 1955, it replaced Renoir’s A Girl with a Watering Can as the most popular piece in the museum.
