12 Fifteenth-Century Flemish Dirk Bouts Last Supper (center panel of the Altarpiece of the Holy Sacrament), St. Peter’s Louvain, Belgium This painting is the first northern one to used a single vanishing point for constructing an interior and he adjusts figures’ scale to correspond to the space they occupy. The perspective isn’t perfect however. The windows and side rooms do not adhere to the rules of linear perspective. It was the first Flemish panel painting depicting this event. He didn’t focus on the biblical narrative itself but instead presented Christ in the role of a priest performing a ritual from the liturgy of the Christian Church. This contrasts sharply with other Last supper depictions. The people depicted are most like portraits of the confraternity’s members responsible for commissioning the altarpiece.
