Five centuries after it was finished, the rebirth of the great masterpiece by Leonardo, restored and liberated from alterations. A very delicate, almost immaterial apparition.
[Leonardo. The Last Supper] The volume presents the results of the lengthy restoration of Leonardo’s Last Supper. This great masterpiece in Milan, commissioned by Ludovico il Moro in 1494, can now be seen in its original form, freed of the painted revisions added over the centuries.
The splendid illustrations of the volume show the striking quality of the painting, the penetrating expressive impact of the figures of the apostles and Christ, the profound spatial sense and utterly Lombard naturalistic fidelity of the reproduction of the details of the details of the set table, offering new and interesting elements for interpretation of the genius of Leonardo.
The close-up view of the work, thanks to actual-size reproductions, offers a marvelously vivid, memorable experience, seeing the work as the artist saw it while completing the painting.
