Santa Maria delle Grazie («Holy Mary of Grace») is a church and Dominican convent in Milan, northern Italy, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The church contains the mural of The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, which is in the refectory of the convent.
Duke of Milan Francesco I Sforza ordered the construction of a Dominican convent and church at the site of a prior chapel dedicated to the Marian devotion of St Mary of the Graces. The main architect, Guiniforte Solari, designed the convent (the Gothic nave), which was completed by 1469. Construction of the church took decades. Duke Ludovico Sforza decided to have the church serve as the Sforza family burial site, and rebuilt the cloister and the apse, both completed after 1490. Ludovico’s wife Beatrice was buried in the church in 1497.
The design of the apse of the church has been attributed to Donato Bramante,[a] as his name is inscribed in a piece of marble in the church vaults delivered in 1494. However, some dispute that he worked on the church at all. According to one source, in 1492–1497 Bramante worked on the crossing and the dome as well the transept apses and the coir with apse; this source also attributes a plan and section of the building to Bramante. Some documents mention the name Amadeo, likely Giovanni Antonio Amadeo. There are similarities between this church and Amadeo’s design for Santa Maria alla Fontana.

The Sacrament of the Last Supper is a painting by Salvador Dalí. Completed in 1955, after nine months of work, it remains one of his most popular compositions. Since its arrival at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. in 1955, it replaced Renoir’s A Girl with a Watering Can as the most popular piece in the museum.
The Sacrament of the Last Supper was completed during Dalí’s post-World War II period, which is characterized by his increased interest in science, optical illusion and religion. During this time he became a devout Roman Catholic and simultaneously was astonished by the «atomic age». Dalí himself labelled this era in his work «Nuclear Mysticism». He sought to combine traditional Christian iconography with images of disintegration. This is especially apparent in his piece The Madonna of Port Lligat, which was completed six years earlier.
The painting was not commissioned. After purchasing the Crucifixion and then giving it to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, collector and banker Chester Dale told Dalí he «had to do one more religious picture». Dale believed that this picture was «too important to keep for a few» and so donated it to the National Gallery. In a paragraph in the National Gallery’s curatorial file but missing from all published accounts, Dalí wrote of this picture:
the last supper original
Leonardo introduce por primera vez en el arte de este tipo un gran dramatismo y tensión entre los personajes, cosa nada habitual. Eso no le impide lograr que la composición goce de gran armonía, serenidad y equilibrio, con lo que preserva los valores estéticos del Renacimiento.
Detalle del primer grupo: Bartolomé, Santiago el Menor y Andrés.Destaca el hecho de que Judas, a diferencia de la tradición iconográfica, no es separado del grupo, sino que está integrado entre los comensales, en el mismo grupo que Pedro y Juan. Con ello, Leonardo introduce una innovación en el fresco que lo pone en el centro de las referencias artísticas de su tiempo.
Detalle del segundo grupo: Judas (sostiene un caso de monedas), Pedro (sostiene un cuchillo) y Juan.Además, Leonardo logra dar un tratamiento realmente diferenciado a cada uno de los personajes en escena. Así, no generaliza la representación de ellos en un solo tipo, sino que cada uno está dotado de rasgos físicos y psicológicos propios.
Sorprende también el hecho de que Leonardo pone en manos de Pedro un cuchillo, en alusión a lo que ocurrirá poco después en el prendimiento de Cristo. Con esto, Leonardo logra ahondar en la psicología del personaje de Pedro, sin duda uno de los apóstoles más radicales.
the last supper analysis
Jesus predicts his betrayal three times in the New Testament, a narrative which is included in all four Canonical Gospels. This prediction takes place during the Last Supper in Matthew 26:24-25, Mark 14:18-21, Luke 22:21-23, and John 13:21-30.
In the Gospel of John, the prediction is preceded by the assertion in 13:17-18 that Jesus knew that Judas Iscariot would betray him: «If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled: He who eats my bread lifted up his heel against me.» The blessing in John 13:17 is thus not directed at the Iscariot.
«The Son of Man goes, even as it is written of him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would be better for that man if he had not been born.» Judas, who betrayed him, answered: «It isn’t me, is it, Rabbi?» He said to him: «You said it.»
The attribution of the title Rabbi to Jesus by the Iscariot in this episode is unique to him, for one after another the other Apostles say «Surely it is not I, Lord», using the Lord (Kyrios) title. The Iscariot again calls Jesus Rabbi in Matthew 26:49 when he betrays him to the Sanhedrin in the Kiss of Judas episode.
