the Last supper

Leonardo da Vinci 15 April 1452 – 2 May 1519 was an Italian polymath, painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived. His genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man.

In his painting the last supper, it dosent depict the ideal people, or ideal body, or ideal human. it depicts the real life senerio, it depicts humans and there true selves. the cloth they are wearing shows that they have money, and to have food to feed that many people, you have to be grateful for, while they are just arguing. the table is also placed in a way where everyone can see one another and watch one another reactions.

The Last Supper specifically portrays the reaction given by each apostle when Jesus said one of them would betray him. All twelve apostles have different reactions to the news, with various degrees of anger and shock. each and everyone yelling at the other, instead of finding out how they would betray Jesus and how they would stop it, the just all yell at each other.
