The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo’s The Last Supper is one of the most recognized paintings of all time, and biiger than most people think – it is 28 feet wide and 15 feet tall, about life sized. Da Vinci captured the moment when Jesus told his disciples that one would betray him. The seemingly feminine looking gentleman is John, NOT Mary Magdalene, according to Leonardo’s own notes.
The original has been restored many times because it was painted on a wall, and subject to decades (now hundreds of years) of mold, water, mildew and weather.
