The feeling of temptation is an emotion most people have felt in their lives. Temptation has been illustrated in Christian religion since the beginning with Adam and Eve. Portraying the emotion of temptation has varied from artist to artist, in all; the viewer will continuously understand the awareness of the feeling. The oil painting “Temptation of Saint Hilarion” by Octave Tassaert was painted around 18571. When examining this art for the first time, the viewer is thrown into a world of dark colors and emotion. As our eyes grow accustomed to the image, we start to understand the message behind the madness of temptation.

In the visual arts, composition is the way to build a work to communicate the intent of the art in the brightest and most persuasive way. The most important thing in composition is the creation of the artistic image. The Last Supper’s composition is very ingenious. Sebastiano arranges the disciples into groups of three, each side of Jesus has two groups. All lines and gestures are centered toward Jesus. From one group to the other, the artist makes an effort to connect with one another in a very natural way; the example of the guy stands on the opposite side of the table on Jesus’s right is putting his hand on the guy’s shoulder that sits next to him to connect the two right-wing groups, and between the two groups on the left, they were making eye contacts.
Tintoretto’s portrayal of the Last Supper is one of dramatic Metaphysicalism. It features the dinning table diagonally along the left half of the work behind it Jesus and his Disciples before the table there is a woman cleaning and in the area above them are the angelic presence of cherubs. There are a number of smaller scenes present within the artwork and there are a number of focal points, which lead the viewer’s eyes over them. The work is full of emotion and is largely unbalanced this is reflective of the time in which the work was created when there was a lot of social outrage and anger. Tintoretto used fantasy, to the point of surrealism in this work; Cherubs and halos are used to emphasize the religious significance of the event. This work has the presence of women. There is a strong contrast in this work with very deep shadows and vibrant bright highlights due to the dramatic lighting. There is an extremely strong use of colour and chiaroscuro.

The true subject of the saints’ life is Christ and his imitation. Through saint lives, events that happened a long time ago seem recent. The saint represents Christ in a different time, called time of salvation, which the reader understands through typology and prolepsis rather than chronology. This unusual construction of time is one of the two most important aspects of hagiographic narrative, the second being the revelation of grace. The negation of mundane things conveys the reader to the grace in the lives of saints (e.g. experiencing bliss in times of pain). To illustrate the ideas discussed,
