Andy Warhol’s final achievement, his Last Supper series, used Pop Art to reanimate Leonardo da Vinci’s 15th century sacred mural located in the refectory of Santa Maria delle Grazie Dominican Church in Milan, Italy. Commissioned by his friend the art dealer Alexandre Iolas, Warhol prepared more than 40 versions, both silk-screened and hand-painted, of the Last Supper. Among these, 10 of the silk-screened ones and 12 collages were displayed at an exhibit that opened in Milan on January 22, 1987, and closed on March 21, 1987.1,3 Some were colored or made on camouflage backgrounds, and others show details of Jesus with overlapping colored rectangles. They were displayed on the walls of the Palazzo delle Stelline gallery, a former convent, located only 50 m from Leonardo’s original mural that was being cleaned at the time of the exhibit.
