About the book: In 1495, Leonardo da Vinci created the masterpiece that would forever define him —The Last Supper. Leonardo was at a low point: at forty-three, he had failed to complete anything that truly fulfilled his astonishing promise. His odds of completing it weren’t promising: he hadn’t worked on such a large painting and had no experience in the standard mural medium of fresco. Ross King unveils dozens of stories that are embedded in the painting, and overturns many of the myths surrounding it as he presents an original portrait of one of history’s greatest geniuses through the lens of his most famous work. – See more at:
