Andy Warhol, The Last Supper , 1982-84 
Pop artist Andy Warhol was the religious art master, and a new show coming this Fall that will explore his Christian faith. Andy Warhol's "The Last Supper" is part of a final painting series of works based on Leonardo’s Renaissance masterpiece. Executed near the end of Andy Warhol's life, the monumental piece which takes up the themes of religion and loss that were so key to Warhol's  work. This past weekend, Ernest and I went on a couple's retreat sponsored by our church where we explored the key themes of our life together. Such exploration makes Andy Warhol, our religious artist of the week.
