More about The Last Supper
The painting shows the moments after Jesus had announced that one of the disciples would betray him (Gospel of John, 13:21).
The great age of the piece, the methods used to create it, exposure to the elements and even deliberate damage mean that little of the original painting remains. Fortunately, a full scale copy was created in oil on canvas just 22 years after Leonardo had completed his version.

Here, you can see much of the detail that has been lost. This piece was used as the guide in the last major restoration attempt, 1978-1998 (longer than it took Leonardo to paint the original!).

The Last Supper mural is in the refectory of the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie, Milan.
