[TIPS] extreme closeup of Last Supper

Many thanks to Laurie Vitale for sharing this one.

I don’t think I’ll ever get the opportunity to see da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” IRL (in real life), so this is the next best thing. This 16 million pixel image is zoomable to show the finest details. There are three ‘tabs’ above the image. “The Subject”, “Look”, and “Understand.” Make sure that after you “Look” around and zoom in that you view the “Understand” area. It offers some excellent tips for viewing and ‘discovering’ the photo.

If you’ve read, “The da Vinci Code” it will be interesting to see if your viewing of this painting is different somehow. Maybe in the same way that “The William Tell Overture” is forever different for those of us over …40. J

Now, send this to your favorite art teacher.
