A Última Sopa

The Last Supper – History and Parody
da primeira à ultima ceia
The Last Supper was painted by Leonardo da Vinci in a rather short period of about three years; that was from 1495 to 1498 AD. A span of three years is considered to be short because the painting was a masterpiece from the point of view of human expression. It was considered to be a very short time even by da Vinci himself, because he had a habit of procrastinating his work. The painting today is preserved in the dining hall of the Santa Maria delle Grazie Convent in the city of Milan, Italy.

The reason that the painting is a masterpiece is that da Vinci took a snapshot of history itself. The imagination that has been deployed by him is also astounding. This famous painting depicts the scene of the Last Supper, where Jesus Christ announces his prediction, that one of his close followers (the twelve apostles), was going to betray him. The expressions of all the characters in the painting are captured by Leonardo da Vinci in just a fraction of a second after Jesus announces his prediction. The expressions and emotions that appear on the faces of the apostles in just a fraction of a second show surprise, outrage, shock and even fright.
