Every time we have visited Milan, Steve and I could never get tickets to Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper. This trip we planned way ahead and were successful. Even though the group that you are in (and numbers are limited) can only stay 15 minutes, you are allowed to take photographs.
The Last Supper is 15 feet × 29 ft and covers the back wall of the dining hall at the monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan. Leonardo began work on The Last Supper in 1495 and completed it in 1498 (he did not work on the painting continuously). The Last Supper specifically portrays the reaction given by each apostle when Jesus said one of them would betray him.
Having read Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, of course I am looking at the painting in a new light. The single shot (see above) is of Jesus. The second picture (below) is of the two people on Jesus’ left side. The person on the right certainly looks like a female to us. What do you think?
