lastsupper

LOCATION: Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie, Milan, Italy
ARTIST: Leonardo da Vinci (April 15, 1452 - May 2, 1519)

Leonardo da Vinci worked for Ludovico Sforza, Duke of Milan for almost eighteen years. The Duke wanted a painting of the Last Supper so da Vinci painted it on the wall of a refectory (dining hall) in the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie, located in Milan. The masterpiece is rather large measuring 15x29 feet! He began to work on it in 1495 and did not complete it until three years later in 1498.
