- For his first major body of prints, 'The Last Supper', a series of 13 screenprints made in 1999, Hirst based the designs on specific pharmaceutical packets but with the original drug names replaced by everyday British café food. 'Beans & Chips' is based on a packet of Becotide Rotacaps. Each pack contains 112 rotacaps, which are designed for insertion into a rotahaler and the contents inhaled. The product is used in the treatment of asthma by reducing inflammation in the lungs. Side effects include candidiasis (thrush) of the throat and mouth. The design of this print was incorporated into a stained-glass window at Hirst's Pharmacy restaurant in Notting Hill, London. Signed by Damien Hirst, front of sheet, in pencil.
