Last Supper

The Last Supper is a wall mural painted by Leonardo da Vinci between 1495 and 1498.  It depicts Christ’s final meal with his apostles, and it is one of the world’s most famous works of art.  It is located in the monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, Italy.  (Other artists have painted their versions of Christ’s Last Supper, but Leonardo da Vinci’s one is the most well-known.)
