ON THE COVER: Patches of brilliant color add another dimension to one of the most frequently reproduced images ever created—the portrait of Jesus from Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper—reworked by Andy Warhol in this silk-screened collage from 1986. In adapting the familiar Renaissance image, Warhol invested the biblical scene with modern significance, reflecting his own religious beliefs and the tension these convictions created with his devotion to American pop culture. In “Jesus as Pop Icon—The Unknown Religious Art of Andy Warhol,” Jane Daggett Dillenberger explores this surprisingly unfamiliar side of the Pope of Pop.
