A Milestone of the Renaissance
Leonardo da Vinci worked on this commission from Duke Ludovico Sforza of Milan for four years, 1494 to 1498. Since then, his depiction of The Last Supper has adorned the north wall of the refectory (dining hall) of the Dominican church Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan. This work measuring 4.22 by 9.04 meters executed using the secco technique shows Jesus flanked by his 12 apostles. The visual perspective reproduced in The Last Supper has led to it being acclaimed as a Renaissance milestone.
