Famous works of art, with all of the characters mysteriously removedS

What would da Vinci's Last Supper look like if all the apostles quit playing that game of telephone, wrapped up their Biblical vittles, and went to go hang out in some Toulouse-Lautrecs?

Then it might look a little something like this scene by Hadju Bence, who excises all of the characters out of notable famous paintings and frescoes, leaving eerily empty scenes in his wake. Somewhere in the Art Institute of Chicago, Edward Hopper's Nighthawks is wall-to-wall with confused angels.
