"Last Supper" by Andrea Del Sarto
Located in the church of San Michele a San Salvi on the outskirts of the Florence city center, Andrea del Sarto’s Last Supper (1519-1527) is a hidden gem of Renaissance artwork. Considered to be the artist’s masterpiece, it was heavily influenced by Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper, especially in the format of the composition, perspective style, and artistic medium. With Jesus and his apostles all sitting on one side of the table, the focus of this work is more on naturalistic gestures and movement in both the drapery and the posing of the figures. This is a must-see for art lovers and visitors who are looking for something off the beaten path in Florence!
