Description: The Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie is an architectural complex, with its heart lying in its integral refectory - begun in 1463 in Milan and revised by Bramante at the end of the 15th century. An unrivalled masterpiece adorns the refectory’s northern wall - The Last Supper, painted by Leonardo da Vinci between 1495 and 1497; Da Vinci’s work prefigured a new age in the history of art. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
