WEBINAR RECORDING | “Ross King Recounts Leonardo’s Last Supper”
Presented by best-selling author Ross King
With Additional Commentary by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
The image of The Last Supper is as readily familiar, Kenneth Clark once wrote, as the boot shape of Italy on a map. However, the history of how this famous mural came to be painted, how precisely Leonardo painted it, and who he painted it for, are much less well-known. Ross King will describe how Leonardo received the commission (for whose execution he had little experience and even less inclination) from Lodovico Sforza, the Duke of Milan, and how he went about creating his masterpiece through an experimental new style. While the mural is burdened with many myths – most of which have no basis in fact – the true story of its execution is even more remarkable and interesting.
The webinar recording consists of a 45 minute lecture.
