History of The Last Supper

Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper is one of the most appreciated, most studied, and most imitated works of art the world has ever known. This work of art was painted somewhere in between of 1494 and 1498 under the administration of “Ludovico il Moro” and is a representation of the last “supper” amongst Jesus and his followers.
In order to make this work unique, Leonardo did a several research and created a many predatory of sketches. Leonardo did not use the customary technique for fresco painting, instead he painted the scene “dry” on the wall of the refectory. Hints of gold and silver foils have been discovered which assure for the artist’s ability to make the figures in a much more realistic way. After completion, his strategy and natural factor had added to the inevitable disintegration of the fresco, which had experienced various restorations.
The latest reclamation was finished in 1999 where a few scientific strategies were utilized to reestablish the original colors as close as could be possible, and to eliminate out hints of paint restored in past endeavors to reestablish the fresco.

Story Behind the Painting

The Last Supper is Leonardo’s visual representation of an occasion chronicled in every one of the four of the Gospels (books in the Christian New Testament). The evening before night Christ was betrayed by one of his pupils, he assembled them together to eat, disclose to them he recognized what was coming and wash their feet. As they ate and drank together, Christ gave the devotees unequivocal guidelines on the most proficient method to eat and savor the future, in remembrance of him. It was the first festivity of the Eucharist, a custom still performed.
In particular, The Last Supper portrays the moments of the story in which the Christ declares that one devotee would betray him before dawn, and each of the twelve have responded to the news with various degrees of horror, outrage, and shock.

Leonardo hadn’t painted such a huge painting and had no experience in the standard wall painting medium of fresco. The mural was made utilizing the experimental colors directly on the dry plaster wall unlike frescos, where the colors are applied with the wet plaster, it has not stood to the trial of time as well. Indeed, even before it was done there were issues with the paint flaking from the wall and Leonardo needed to repair it. Throughout the years it has disintegrated, been vandalized and restored. Today we are likely looking at the very little of the original painting.

The Layout of The Last Supper
A significant part of the ongoing enthusiasm for the artwork has fixated on the subtle elements covered up inside the artistic creation, however in guiding regard for these ‘hidden’ details of interest, the vast majority miss the amazing feeling of perspective the work shows. The sharp angling of the walls inside the image, which lead back to the apparently far off back wall of the room and the windows that demonstrate the hills and sky beyond. The kind of day appeared through these windows adds to the sentiment of peacefulness that rests in the focal point of the piece, around the figure of Christ.
In 1652, a doorway was added to the wall that holds the artistic creation. Its development implied that a lower part of the painting, which incorporated Jesus’ feet was lost.

Painting at Present

The artistic creation, regardless of restoration, stays delicate, so, in an effort to slow its deterioration, visitors are allowed only 15 minutes to see the painting in little groups. However, a portion of Leonardo’s characteristics such as brilliant colors, delicate modeling, and facial expressions have been lost, viewers can at present witness his expertise in depicting a consecutive story, and his enthusiasm for  representing human psychology in expression, gesture, and posture.
