Sacred and secular meet in The Last Supper (Dove), in which Warhol, in 1986, painted commercial trademarks on top of his painted outline of Leonardo’s Last Supper. The carefully selected logos and figures represent the Trinity: GE, which recalls General Electric’s slogan, “We bring good things to light,” symbolizes God the Father, who separated light from darkness (Genesis 1:4); levitating above Jesus’ head, the Dove soap logo alludes to “the Spirit descending upon Jesus like a dove” at his baptism (Mark 1:10); and Jesus himself represents the second person of the Trinity, God the Son. The 59-cent price tag may refer to the devaluation of religious images.
