Life. Leonardo was born out of wedlock to notary Piero da Vinci and a peasant woman named Caterina in Vinci in the region of Florence, and he was educated in the studio of Florentine painter Andrea del Verrocchio.Much of his earlier working life was spent in the service of Ludovico il Moro in Milan. He later worked in Rome, Bologna, and Venice, and he spent his last years in France at the home.
Leonardo da Vinci painted The Last Supper because Ludovico Sforza, the Duke of Milan, asked him to do so. So it is really not known of how da Vinci felt about his painting. The combination of elements and principles of design make this painting one of the most beautiful in the world.
