This is the official record of the restoration of Leonardo's painting "The Last Supper". It documents the cleaning and removal of the overpainting performed in other attempts at restoration, then looks at the watercolour additions of Barcilon, which were based on Leonardo's preparatory drawings, early copies of the painting and contemporary textual descriptions. The book details the reproduction process and distinguishes from the fresco Leonardo's hand from that of the restorers. Barcilon documents the technical aspects of the restoration, while art historian, Pietro C. Marani focuses on the history of the fresco, from conception through to restoration.
Pinin Brambilla Barcilon is one of the world's foremost authorities on the conservation of Renaissance frescoes. She has published widely on the subject and is responsible for a number of important technical advancements in the field. For the last twenty years, she has served as the chief conservator of the project to restore the "Last Supper." Pietro C. Marani is a curator and Renaissance scholar who specializes in the life and production of Leonardo da Vinci. His books include "Leonardo: I Maestri, Leonardo and Venice," and "Leonardo: Catalogo Completo dei Dipinti." Harlow Tighe is a translator living in Milan.
