This paper discusses how Leonardo's "The Last Supper" exhibits all of the classical elements of Western art and those of the High Renaissance. It looks at how the three major trends of 15th century painting, being monumentality and mathematically ordered space at the expense of movement and the freedom of movement at the expense of monumentality and controlled space, are all harmonized and balanced in "The Last Supper" which stands as the penultimate example of Leonardo da Vinci's long career as a painter and artisan. In addition, the paper discusses and describes the iconography and color scheme of the painting.
