This reproduction of Leonardo Da Vinci's Last Supper, made on canvas by an unknown artist in the 16th century, reveals many details which can no longer be detected due to the deterioration of the original fresco. A valuable cultural artefact, this copy tells modern-day audiences a great deal about the original that would otherwise have been lost.
As one of the most outstanding achievements of the High Renaissance period and perhaps the most instantly recognisable painting in the world, Da Vinci's original Last Supper was forged in correlation with the recently honed laws of visual perspective, one of the many seminal innovation of the High Italian Renaissance. Influenced by the teachings of the Muslim thinker Alhazen some two centuries before, Florentine artists used mathematical equations to achieve the theoretical breakthrough. Initially confined to the circles of Renaissance Florence, the laws or perspective and the creation of an aligned reproduction of what the eye sees from a fixed point, the practice later became the foundation of arts education. Da Vinci uses the theoretical innovation to draw all attention to Jesus who is situated apart from his followers. The majestic precision of his disciples and their various interrelated movements make them appear gravitationally linked to the Christ.
In The Last Supper Da Vinci chose to identify Judas, who in the biblical narrative would soon betray Jesus, as reaching towards the bread and knocking over a cellar of salt – an ancient sign of bad omen. Judas' isolation is also expressed by his leaning against the table making him appear to shrink away from Jesus. The original of this monumental work, so deeply ingrained in cultural history, still sits as a fresco on the wall of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan.
