Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper

One of the greatest masterpieces in the history of art is located in the refectory of the 15th century church of Santa Maria delle Grazie: Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper. The building of the magnificent Renaissance church and the attached refectory were commissioned by Ludovico il Moro in 1463.

Duke Ludovico il Moro chose the Dominican church of Santa Maria delle Grazie as the mausoleum for himself and his family. For this purpose, he commissioned architect Donato Bramante with the construction of a monumental chancel topped by a decorated dome. Work on the project began in 1492. Bramante also designed the marble doorway, the old sacristy and the charmingly named small cloister "of the frogs." Lombard Renaissance masters including Butinone, Zenale and Gaudenzio Ferrari decorated the interior with frescoes.

Leonardo da Vinci was commissioned during this time (1494) to create a fresco for the north wall of the refectory. Leonardo completed the work in 1498, one year before the French seized Milan and ended the grandiose funerary projects of Ludovico il Moro. The painting illustrates one of the most intense emotional moments of the New Testament. While the Last Supper is a typical subject chosen for the decoration of many a refectory, Leonardo chose to capture the moment immediately after Christ's announcement that one of his apostles would betray him.

The scene is set in a room with a coffered ceiling whose walls are decorated with tapestries (this portion of the fresco has not been cleaned). Three windows open onto a landscape in the background. Light from a seemingly natural source shines on the scene from the left, allowing Leonardo to reproduce the phenomena that he observed in nature: just as the waves spread in circles when a pebble is dropped in water, so does the effect of Christ's words reach the apostles.

Because of the experimental technique the great master adopted to paint it, Leonardo's Last Supper showed signs of decay soon after its creation. Leonardo chose to use tempera on a gesso base instead of the usual "a buon fresco" method, rendering the paint unstable. Its condition was not improved by continuous attempts to touch it up and consolidate it over the next few centuries.

Fortunately The Last Supper, together with the Crucifixion fresco by Montorfano on the opposite wall survived even the World War II bombings that destroyed the rest of the refectory. The last restoration took over 20 years and was completed in 1999. It succeeded in recovering original parts of Leonardo's masterpiece, and although the fresco is fragmentary, it is finally possible to experience its true beauty.
