Last Supper Wheelchair Accessible Tours

Last Supper wheelchair accessible tours, Leonardo Da Vinci began painting it in the 1495.

On the wall of the refectory ( dining hall ) of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, and completed it in 1498.

Leonardo Da Vinci was commissioned to execute the painting in the Dominican monastery of this Church by Duke of Milan, Ludovico Sforza.

The church and friary found an ambitious patron in him.

The Duke of Milan wanted to give visible expression to his position in both impressive buildings like the grand Church and grandiose paintings like the Last Supper.

Therefore, Santa Maria delle Grazie became the court church.

A burial place for members of the Ducal family, and home to Leonardo's famous painting.

Everyone knows the painting depicts Jesus's last meal with his apostles before he was captured and crucified.

But more specifically, Leonardo da Vinci wanted to capture the instant just after Jesus reveals that one of his friends will betray him, complete with reactions of shock and rage from the apostles.

In da Vinci's interpretation, the moment also takes place just before the birth of the Eucharist.

With Jesus reaching for the bread and a glass of wine that would be the key symbols of this Christian sacrament.

Da Vinci Frescos

Frescos were painted on wet plaster.

But Leonardo da Vinci rejected this traditional technique for several reasons.

First of, he wanted to achieve a grander luminosity than the fresco method allowed for.

But the bigger problem with frescos, as Leonardo da Vinci saw it, was that they demanded the painter rush to finish his work before the plaster dried.

In 1652, a doorway was added to the wall that holds the painting.

Its construction meant that a lower central chunk of the piece, which included Jesus's feet, was lost.

In painting the Last Supper, Leonardo created the effect that the room in which Christ and the apostles are seen was an extension of the refectory.

This is quite appropriate, since the Last Supper takes up the basic theme ( eating) of the purpose of the refectory.

Last Supper wheelchair accessible tours, is a type of painting which builds on the early Renaissance painting traditions in areas such as composition and perspective.

Yet, it is innovative in terms of its study of emotional reactions and psychological states, all captured in a type of naturalism which was unknown in Italian painting in the previous century.
