The Mona Lisa and The Last Supper are two of the most well-known and recognizable paintings.
The Italian artist, Leonardo da Vinci, was not famous when he began painting The Last Supper in 1495 and he faced much professional uncertainty. He was forty years old and had left several patrons dissatisfied with his work.
However, The Last Supper, a fifteen feet high by thirty feet wide work, is considered a masterpiece. It depicts the last supper of Jesus with his disciples and the reaction to him saying he would be betrayed.
