Last Supper (sketch)

Last Supper sketch (1963)

This pastel work is a sketch for a major oil painting representing the Last Supper and the 12 Apostles, incomplete at the time of Agemian’s sudden death. The sketch hung for some years in the Holy Cross Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts, magnified and projected so as to fill the space the oil painting was to occupy. After the relocation of the church to Belmont, Massachusetts, the sketch is presumed lost.
