See Intricate Details in Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper in a New Gigapixel Image

The Royal Academy of Arts and Google teamed up on a high-resolution scan of a copy of Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper painted by his students. Even though the top part of the original is not depicted, this copy is said to be “the most accurate record of the original” and since the actual mural by Leonardo is in poor shape, this copy is perhaps the best way to see what Leonardo intended. This version was made around the same time as Leonardo made his original. It’s oil paint on canvas, whe...

An Immaculate Copy of Leonardo’s The Last Supper Digitized by Google: View It in High Resolution Online

Romantic poets told us that great art is eternal and transcendent. They also told us everything made by human hands is bound to end in ruin and decay. Both themes were inspired by the rediscovery and renewed fascination for the arts of antiquity in Europe and Egypt. It was a time of renewed appreciation for monumental works of art, which happened to coincide with a period when they came under considerable threat from looters, vandals, and invading armies. One work of art that appeared on the it...

See Leonardo’s ‘Last Supper’ Online Far More Clearly Than It Looks In Person

“When he painted it, Leonardo used an experimental technique using egg tempera and oil paint on plaster, so it began to fade soon after it was completed. Luckily, Leonardo’s pupils created a copy using oil paint on canvas that has better stood the test of time. Now, that oil painting is available online after a partnership between England’s Royal Academy of Arts and Google Arts & Culture.” – Smithsonian Magazine

Watch Picasso Create a Masterpiece in Just Five Minutes (1955)

"One day in Paris a wealthy woman goes into a café and sees Picasso," writes Alastair Dryburgh in Everything You Know About Business Is Wrong. After a few minutes, she summons up the courage to approach him. 'Monsieur Picasso,' she asks, 'would you make a portrait of me? I'll pay you anything you want.' Picasso nods, grabs a menu, and in five minutes has sketched the woman's portrait on the back of it. He hands it to her. 'Five thousand francs,' he says. 'But Monsieur Picasso, it only to...
