Ross King - Leonardo and the Last Supper

In 1495, Leonardo da Vinci began painting what would become one of history’s most influential and beloved works of art — The Last Supper. He was an odd choice for the job — not only had he never worked on a painting of such a large size—fifteen feet high by thirty feet wide — but he had no experience in the extremely difficult medium of fresco. In Leonardo and the Last Supper ($28.00), New York Times bestselling author Ross King explores how Leonardo created the masterpiece that would forever define him. The mural was responsible, far more than any of his other works (the Mona Lisa was for all intents and purposes invisible to the public before the nineteenth century), for his reputation as a painter. 

Ross King is the highly praised author of Brunelleschi’s Dome (the Book Sense Nonfiction Book of the Year in 2000), Michelangelo and the Pope’s Ceiling (on the New York Times extended bestseller list), The Judgment of Paris, Machiavelli: Philosopher of Power, and two novels, Ex Libris and Domino. He lives outside Oxford in England.
