The iconic and perhaps most famous image in Western art, “The Last Supper” by Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519) revolutionized perspective in painting. An artistic genius, da Vinci also excelled in physiology, the sciences and mathematics, applying all of his collected knowledge to his art. “The Last Supper,” a 15’ x 29’ mural which is painted on a wall in the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, is an innovation in point of view, perspective, and was the first art to authentically represent human reactions and emotions.
Leonardo Da Vinci (1452 – 1519) was a Renaissance Master whose genius also profoundly impacted mathematics and the sciences. Insatiably curious and inventive, Da Vinci possessed unparalleled intellectual diversity. While scientifically studying light and shadow, he was able to conceptualize three dimensions and used the knowledge to impart his figures with their revolutionary lifelike quality. His works also reflected his insight into techniques for expressing atmosphere, depth, and the effects of age and emotion.
