Assessing Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper

  • Ok, so first let’s tackle the question of why he puts all the disciples on the same side of the table. Obviously in real life no one eats dinner with everyone on one side of the table right? So why does he choose to paint it in this way? Give me a few sentences as to why you think did that and then assess a little bit about what you think of this work. Then discuss some of the painting techniques he used. This website (Please do online search copy and paste in your browser)… will be helpful for finding information about his techniques. Of course, remember to put all of this in your words. This section should probably be at least two paragraphs

The invention of Leonardo that I find most fascinating was

  • Pick one of his inventions and tell me why you think it was significant and cool. This website lists a bunch of them in great detail (Please do online search copy and paste in your browser) “Leonardo inventions ” that should get you started here. For some reason, last term a bunch of people cited the Mona Lisa as an invention, which it is not, so steer clear of assessing that here please

A modern comparison to Leonardo would be

Ok, this should be fun. Leonardo is often described as the epitome of a ‘Renaissance Man’, but what does that mean? A Renaissance Man is someone who was so skilled in many areas and was a real game changer in the world. Remember for this section someone who did something amazing in just one area of the world would be a weak comparison. Leonardo was a painter, inventor, weapons designer, etc. and was amazing at all of those things. Who today reminds of someone like that? So name the person and then explain WHY you think they are a modern Renaissance Man.
