The Geometry of the Last Supper : Leonardo da Vinci's Hidden Composition and its Symbolism Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Have you ever stopped to consider what goes into a painting beyond what you can see?

Welcome to a fascinating journey of discovery... The Geometry of the Last Supper skilfully blends the worlds of Renaissance art, geometry and symbolism, allowing the reader to uncover, for the very first time, the simple and delicate geometry at play in the composition of Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece.

Never before has a single and unified solution been proposed to explain the making of the Last Supper. During the Renaissance, symbolic significance was ascribed to geometrical shapes.

These symbols, such as those encountered in The Geometry of the Last Supper, have an ancient history, deeply rooted in a tradition that goes back to Pythagoras and beyond.

Thanks to them, the geometry presented in this book comes to life as the inner message of the Last Supper is revealed. Once the meaning of the geometry becomes clear, you will be left with the feeling of having been let into a priceless secret.

Ideal for any art-lovers or any reader who enjoys looking behind the layers.
