The Last Supper Art Glass
A fine adaption of master artist Leonardo Da Vinci's famous "The Last Supper," one of the most inspiring religious images has here been reproduced in fine art glass. In this spiritual scene Jesus shares a last meal with his disciples, sharing remembrances and strengthened their faith for the trials to come. Art glass, also called stained glass, is created by a unique technique of fusing hand-rolled architectural glass with unique transparent enamels, then kiln fired at temperatures above 1100 degrees Fahrenheit so the colors actually become part of the glass. The shades and hues will stay bright and glowing with radiant color and provide a stunning view from either side. The art glass window is framed in zinc with a hanging chain for window display and a tabletop easel stand to enjoy this treasured piece in any room.
- Window includes acrylic display stand and 9" long chain with snap hooks for hanging.
- Hanging hardware not included.
About The Artist
Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)
Italian High Renaissance painter scientist mathematician and inventor Leonardo da Vinci was born and raised near Vinci Italy. He is often described as the quintessential Renaissance Man because of his endless curiosity and diverse talents not to mention being one of the greatest painters to ever live.
In 1466 da Vinci was the apprentice to Verrocchio one of the most proficient artists of the time who himself had learned from the great Donatello. At this workshop da Vinci gained training in drafting chemistry metallurgy and carpentry in addition to the artistic skills of painting drawing sculpting and modeling. After his years of training and creating paintings that even his teacher could not match da Vinci opened his own studio in Florence in 1476. It was here that he was commissioned to paint two of his most famous paintings The Virgin of the Rocks and The Last Supper. It was also later in Florence where da Vinci met Caterina Sforza who some believe was the model for the Mona Lisa the da Vinci painting central to art history and one of the most viewed portraits of all time.
Although vastly talented in anything he attempted Leonardo da Vinci's paintings are what made him most famous. His Mona Lisa and The Last Supper paintings are cultural icons and the most illustrated and imitated portrait and religious painting of all time. His drawing of the Vitruvian Man is also iconic.
As an inventor da Vinci was centuries ahead of his time; he essentially postulated the helicopter calculator and the use of solar power. His sketchbooks show blueprints for flying machines wings the human anatomy as well as numerous ruminations on such subjects that can only be described as extraordinary.

Caring for your Stained Art Glass:
Any irregularities in your work of art from Glassmasters are inherent in the nature of fine stained glass. Streaking, bubbling, and striations are characteristic of the hand-rolling process used by glassmakers in the Middle Ages. After the enamels are applied to the glass, they are kiln-fired to become one with the glass. Because the colors are part of the glass, your Glassmasters stained glass has a lifetime warranty against fading and discoloration. The stained glass may be cleaned with any mild cleaning solution that does not contain any abrasives or acid. Use a soft cloth to dry and polish the surface.
