Ross King: Leonardo and the Last Supper
Leonardo and the Last Supper
Ross King, Author, Leonardo and the Last Supper
In 1495, Leonardo da Vinci began painting one of history’s most influential and beloved works of art. Leonardo was then at a low point, having failed to complete anything that demonstrated his astonishing promise. The commission to paint The Last Supper provided only small compensation, and Leonardo’s odds of completing such a large fresco, without previous experience in the difficult medium, were not promising. In his book, King finds that many of the myths about The Last Supper are inaccurate and that the painting’s true story is even more interesting.
