Autumn 2023 Year 4
By Mim, Jesse, Theo and Brooke
Leonardo da Vinci painted The Last Supper for a monastery dining hall in Milan, Italy, between 1495 and 1498.
It is a fresco (painting on plaster).
It shows Jesus eating with his apostles before one of them betrays him.
Leonardo experimented with a new fresco technique. He used oil paint on dry plaster so he could make changes. It wasn’t a complete success but he was a great experimenter and scientist!
Painting on wet plaster is trickier but makes the art more permanent.
We had a go, depicting what represents our own country: Paddington, The London Eye, Tea, The Caribbean and Fish and Chips!
