Through his incisive manipulation of light, sound, and theatrical illusion, Greenaway creates a series of dynamic audio-visual environments that provoke new ways of seeing Leonardo’s masterpiece. The installation includes a meticulously detailed “clone” of the painting set within a full-scale replica of the nearly 4,000-square-foot apse and cupola of the Refectory of Santa Maria Delle Grazie in Milan, home to the original work. On view from December 2, 2010, through January 6, 2011, Leonardo’s Last Supper: A Vision by Peter Greenaway brings new insight to one of the world’s most celebrated masterpieces.
