Pieter Breugel The Elder, Storm At Sea (1569)
This Renaissance painter’s last work was an unfinished oil-on-panel painting depicting a bunch of boats during a storm at sea. I guess that’s why he picked that title.
Raphael, The Transfiguration (1520)
Side note: this is not the ninja turtle. I know, I was disappointed too. True to form, Raphael’s last work was a Renaissance painting with Biblical inspiration. It shows Jesus doing that magic trick where it looks like he’s floating and two old men are floating towards him.
Edouard Manet, A Bar At The Folies-Bergère (1882)
One of the pioneers in impressionism, Manet’s last painting was completed a year before his death. He died from gangrene after having his foot chopped off. He had experienced poor blood circulation suffering from locomotor ataxia, a side effect of syphilis. That’s how pretty much everyone died in the first Friday the 13th movie – I mean from gangrene! Only it wasn’t gangrene, it was Jason Voorhees.
Rembrandt, Simeon With The Christ Child In The Temple (1669)
The title of the painting pretty much says it all. It’s Simeon with the Christ child inside of a temple. It’s all a bit fuzzy so I can’t actually identify any of them, but I see no reason for Rembrandt to lie about it.
