The Last Supper

Image result for the last supper painting fresco

Being in Milan last semester, one of the things I was most excited about was seeing ‘The Last Supper’ by Leonardo Da Vinci in the Santa Maria Della Grazie church. Like most people I  was intrigued by the painting and had read all that there was to read including the conspiracy theories that surrounded this 15th Century masterpiece.

However, no amount of reading could have prepared me for that moment. The painting was not on a canvas, but was instead on the wall. It was much bigger than I expected, drawing viewers in with its one-point perspective. And while there was another fresco painted by the Giovanni Donato right opposite The Last Supper, I had a tough time switching glances.
