Marco d’Oggiono’s The Last Supper (Oggiono, 1475 – Milano, 1530), Leonardo da Vinci’s pupil, is a copy painted between 1506 and 1509, based on his master’s The Last Supper. It represents the Christ’s last supper surrounded by his twelve apostles. It’s an oil on canvas measuring 260 cm x 545 cm. since 1980, thanks to a safekeeping of the Louvre, the painting (ML 781) has found back the spot it used to occupy in the chapel at the time of Anne de Montmorency and until the French Revolution.
