Inspired by Leonardo - Talking Life, Talking Art: Recreating the Last Support

Wednesday, 17 April 2019

18:00 to 19:30

Leonardo's wall painting of The Last Supper is one of the most iconic artworks of all time. In this evening event we will be linking the preparatory sketch of The Head of St Philip (c.1495) on display in the Millenium Gallery with the whole painting in Milan. In the style of our Talking Art, Talking Life Sessions we'll be finding connections together about character, expression fate and hope.

We'll be looking at the current exhibition, examining some photots from Milan, seeing how The Last Supper has been used and abused over the years and then re-creating our own version of the iconic painting if you would like to join in, you can strike the popst of one of Leonardo's famous figures our 'tableau vivant' will be photographed and you'll be emailed your own copy. Characters will be chosen at complete random so you could be Jesus, Judas or Phillip
