Leonardo Da Vinci Mainly
Your textbook compares the Last Supper (1592-94) by Tintoretto with that of Leonardo da Vinci’s work of the same title from 1495-98, nearly 100 years earlier. Looking beyond the obvious visual differences such as the off-center perspective and more active scene painted by Tintoretto, compare the works in relation to the geographical influences of each artist. Leonardo da Vinci mainly worked in Central Italy, Tintoretto was a Venetian artist working in Northern Italy; how do these two geographic areas see themselves in the development and progression of Renaissance art? Examine their unique contributions. Identify any similarities.
