The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, Santa Maria della Grazie

Perhaps the greatest painting of the Renaissance, The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci in the church of Santa Maria della Grazie captures the dramatic moment at which Jesus reveals one of his disciples will betray him. The work is testament to a troubled history. Paint started peeling away in Renaissance times, when the wall was used for target practice. In the 19th century it was a backdrop to the French invasion and nearly got destroyed in the Second World War. Thanks to careful restoration the fresco can now be seen in full colour.
