This is one of Rubens's versions of the Last Supper. It shows Judas looking away, absent-mindedly, as the others are shocked to learn about the pending betrayal.

The painting was originally an altar-piece in the Saint Rombout Church in Mechelen. Two pre-studies are known one in Moscow, the other in a private collection.
