Amanda Grieve is a graduate of Wright State University, recently earning her BFA with a focus in studio painting. She is the new Gallery Director at the Dayton Society of Artists and is thrilled to be part of the great art scene in Dayton. Amanda hopes you’ll be as enthralled with art history as she is. The Scientific Narrative of Leonardo’s Last Supper is an introduction to Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper. It delves into how and why Leonardo created it, looking at conventions during the Renaissance and Leonardo’s desire to elevate the status of painting. It argues that Leonardo was using every ounce of his intellect in the creation of this wonderful painting.
