Leonardo da Vinci: Picture "The Last Supper" 1495-1498

For this world-famous fresco in the refectory Santa Maria delle Grazie, Milan, Leonardo tried an innovative technique oil tempera directly on the masonry wall painted. But after a few years, the 9-meter-wide picture began to crumble, so that the work has been preserved only in fragments, even after a comprehensive restoration. The master carver Andreas Mussner from the famous for its wood carvings Val Gardena created this world of art as a relief made of solid, carefully selected sycamore. Completely handmade, hand painted, each piece is unique. Size: 47 x 27 cm.

Leonardo Vinci (1452-1519) is considered the greatest polymath of the art and history of science. His inventions, works of art and studies, but also his mysterious life, deal with today science and literature.

The universal genius Leonardo da Vinci, epitome of the Renaissance man, was a painter, sculptor, architect, writer, theorist, naturalist, inventor and technician all in one. Although he had learned as an illegitimate child in the primary school barely read, write and count, he prevailed early thanks to his unique talent for training as a painter and sculptor in the workshop of Verrocchios, and soon tried to gain a position at one of the farms. Temporarily succeeded, for the Duke of Milan or for Cesare Borgia, to operate the Pope or the French King.

His life was filled with that humanistic view of humanity and universal knowledge and pressing urge, which was characteristic for its era. Constantly observing, registering, and analysing, he created alone as a scientist and engineer a huge factory. For example, he dealt with the geological information and the cloud formation, the flow of the water and the air, the bird's flight and apparatus, which should allow the flight of people.

His work as an artist is, however, less, but occupies the highest rank such as the "Last supper" and "Mona Lisa".

His artistic quest for compositions with moderate-quiet basic geometric shapes prepared the High Renaissance. His later approaches to regard the phenomenal world in their transformation by air and light, even have been expected on the Baroque painting.

Representation of typical scenes of daily life in painting, which can distinguish between peasant, bourgeois and courtly themes.

The genre reached its peak and immense popularity in the Dutch painting of the 17th century. In the 18th century, especially in France, the courtly and gallant painting comes to the fore while in Germany the bourgeois character was emphasised.
