The Last Supper in history

In 1494, Ludovico il Moro commissioned Leonardo to decorate the refectory of the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, a Sforza family religious place.

Traditional decorations were chosen for two walls, epitomizing the Crucifixion and the Last Supper.

The Last Supper was painted by Leonardo da Vinci he began the work in 1495 or 1496 and completed it around 1498.

It is a mural painting in Milan at the Convent of Santa Maria della Grazie, represents Jesus with his Disciples during the last hours they spend together.

Leonardi’s wall painting represents the moment when Jesus said, “certainly one of you will betray me”. The composition is based on the reactions that the disciplines show this anticipation.

Soon after the painting was completed on February 9, 1498 it began to deteriorate.
