Marco Rosci states that while there is much speculation about Leonardo, his vision of the world is essentially logical rather than mysterious, and that the empirical methods he employed were unusual for his time.
Da Vinci was one of the great creative minds of the Italian Renaissance, hugely influential as an artist and sculptor but also immensely talented as an engineer, scientist and inventor.

It would be an insult to put only one...

Jesus's last supper.

Its a Still Life.

Different shades of brown, blue, and red were used with a little yellow.

they blend well to make a wonderful sense of the last supper.

Its Realistic.

I think Leonardo was trying to show the sadness and morning of the last supper. They didnt have much more time with Jesus after all.

Sadness... but hope is still here...

Jesus in the middle. It just shows them gathered around him... i guess its showing him is king and thats why i like it...
