The College has been fortunate to host a copy of Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last Supper which has been on display in the Antechapel for the last 25 years. This beautiful painting is attributed to one of Da Vinci’s followers Giampietrino and was painted in around 1520.

The work has been on loan from the Royal Academy of Arts to which it is being returned this week. To mark this event a lecture was given on Friday 8th September in the Antechapel by Martin Kemp, a leading expert on Leonardo. His lecture was entitled ‘Leonardo’s Last Supper: An Obituary’.
