The Rizzoli Quadrifolio art series combines the most popular artists with authoritative text and a fresh, unique format destined to appeal to children and adults alike. Featuring sixteen pages that open up to four times the individual page size, this series allows the reader to delve into the details of individual paintings or see the full horizontal development of a fresco. With stunning color reproductions, expert commentary, and a revolutionary format, Rizzoli Quadrifolios is a pioneering art series.Following the success of Michelangelo, the Sistine Chapel; Vincent van Gogh; Gustav Klimt; and Caravaggio, is Leonardo da Vinci: The Last Supper, a book dedicated to perhaps one of the most significant and recognizable works of art ever created. The reader is afforded extraordinary details of this restored but still deteriorating fresco, perhaps the Renaissance master's most important work. Located in a small monastery in Milan, the work has recently been restored so that the delicate faces which register, with great subtlety, the gravity of the moment at which Christ announces to his apostles that one among them will betray him, are visible once again. Every inch of the work is reproduced here in illuminating close-ups so that the masterpiece can be appreciated anew.
