Plautilla Nelli captures on canvas the moment in which Christ announces His betrayal by one of the Twelve. Judas Iscariot sits without a halo on 'the other side' the Last Supper table. He is central to the Christ story and in the center of Nelli's painting. Thanks to an opportunity for giving called 'The Art Defense Fund', ten committed donors will pledge $1,000 to make the Judas restoration a collective effort. AWA invites you to be one of them.
