Many great works of art have been created that we call "Christian," but none has received as much acclaim as Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper. Art lovers venerate it for its composition and noble aesthetics, whereas, for Christians, it epitomizes the intimacy between Christ and his disciples. In recent years--following the publication of bestselling fictional narratives and dubious historical studies--The Last Supper has also become the focus of intrigue, controversy, speculation, and sensation. Recent restoration of the painting has exposed remnants of the original work and removed falsifications created by over-painting. Thus, for the first time since its creation more than five hundred years ago, we can contemplate Da Vinci's masterpiece in its more or less original form. This lavishly illustrated, full-color book reproduces many details of the restored work, and the author turns our attention to newly revealed aspects of The Last Supper that lead to fresh interpretations. The philosopher Rudolf Steiner called The Last Supper the world's most important work of art, adding that it revealed "the meaning of Earth existence." Michael Ladwein sheds light on many aspects of the spiritual facts that can be uncovered in this immortal painting--one that has lost nothing of its urgency in our modern world.

The Portrait of Mona Lisa in Walters Art Museum, Baltimore Maryland is an original work by Leonardo Da Vinci. However, scholars attributed it as the finest copy. Da Vinci wants to defense: It is his painting! Special scientific skills that Leonardo used on this painting have been discovered. Copyist should not be able to copy the unique patterns (elements) that only Leonardo had used in oil paintings. Louvre pointed out a question: Leonardo Da Vinci doubtless started to paint Mona Lisa in Florence around 1503. Leonardo seems to have taken the completed portrait to France in 1516 rather than giving it to the person who commissioned it? One of the reasonable answers to it is that Leonardo painted more than one Mona Lisa. He practiced on a canvas first, maybe a few more times, gave it to the commissioner, and then painted the final version on a piece of poplar. As he was satisfied on his last Mona Lisa, he gave it to the new French King. The Walters Art Museum collects a portrait of Mona Lisa on canvas. It has not been authenticated to Leonardo but as a best early copy. It is hard for scholars to accept a newly discovered Leonardo's work as an original, as scholars worldwide always think one being a copy if there is an existing painting in the same subject in a Museum.Scholars have been believing that there were only about fifteen (now maybe a little bit more) paintings by Leonardo. No scholar expects to see more in discovering. Why being such a super genius, Leonardo only left about fifteen paintings? One of the possible reasons is that people have not recognized his unique composition elements formed from his essences, skills, and craftsmanship in his paintings. People only believe those "reliable provenances or records", rather than the painting itself. All unrecognized paintings are ignored or simply being considered as copies of the millions. Therefore, we need an interpreter to translate those special but very common elements found in his existing fifteen paintings. A unique nature, the 111.24 degree golden angle (composition element) has been found in all of Leonardo da Vinci's recognized paintings as well as the two Mona Lisa portraits in Louvre and Walters. This discovery distinguishes Leonardo's works from that of all other Renaissance or later painters. Any "copyist" would not copy those composition elements into his work as the copyist did not know the existence of such elements.

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) has come to be regarded as an artist-genius without peer. The Renaissance was in many ways the beginning of the modern world, and Leonardo led the way. He was an artist, an inventor and a scientist, who performed numerous scientific investigations in order to become a better painter. Curious as well as observant, he constantly tried to explain what he saw and formulated many experiments to test his ideas. His notebooks reveal a spirit of scientific inquiry and mechanical inventiveness that were centuries ahead of his time. Perhaps the greatest of Renaissance painters, Leonardo yet left only a handful of completed paintings. Here, among others, are The Last Supper, the Mona Lisa, and The Virgin of the Rocks. Also enriching the book are a commentary on each work, biographical details, and a timeline indicating the important events of Leonardo’s era.

Most people will know Leonardo da Vinci as a master artist, but he was far more than that, preferring to describe himself as an artist-engineer to encompass his prodigious skills as a virtuoso inventor. Richly illustrated with more than 50 facsimile images from his notebooks and several of his most famous works of art, including The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa, The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci dips into the thousands of pages and several notebooks that he accumulated with his observations on a wide range of subjects, offering an insight into his thoughts and ideas. Combining Leonardo's famous mirror writing with the most beautifully detailed drawings and sketches, these extracts are divided into three sections - art, science, and design - and cover topics as varied as painting, anatomy, the nature of flight, the scientific method, and the practical concerns of engineering. The accompanying translations by the renowned Leonardo da Vinci scholar Edward MacCurdy bring to life this polymath and genius who was truly the quintessential 'Renaissance Man'.
