Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic Last Supper, inside the refectory of Milan’s Santa Maria delle Grazie
Even though seeing this capolavoro (masterpiece) has long been on my wish list, I didn’t expect to be so moved by it when I finally saw it in person. I. Was. Wrong.
The Last Supper pulled me in, enveloped me, took up residence in my heart. For the remainder of the day, I carried these emotions with me, and could not stop thinking about the painting’s significance, beauty and power.
It felt a tiny bit like falling in love…(please come back tomorrow for the extended post!)
