    Story
    (40)

    Milan, 1496 and 44-year-old Leonardo da Vinci is in a state of professional uncertainty and financial difficulty. For 18 months he has been painting murals in both the Sforza Castle in Milan and the refectory of the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie. The latter project will become The Last Supper, a complex mural that took three years to complete on a surface 15 feet high by 20 feet wide. He had never attempted a painting so big, and had no experience with fresco.

    Jean says: "Fascinating"

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Somebody looking for a history of Italy may enjoy this book. I was sorely disappointed after having listened to "Michaelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling" which was great! This book? Not so much.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Sadly, probably not another Ross King book.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration was OK at best.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Leonardo and the Last Supper?

    About 90% of it. I didn't finish it because I got bored.


    Any additional comments?

    Better off buying something else.
