I just learned that DaVinci was an old man when he painted The Last Supper

When I read in a book by Ross King (author of Defiant Spirits, also well worth reading) that Leonardo DaVinci was past his life expenctancy at the time he took on the big project, I wanted to go to a retirement home and spread the word- and that’s what I heartily recommend you do: go to your friendly, neighbourhood elderly person and tell him or her that DaVinci showed great promise but hadn’t really finished anything until he was an old man, so it’s not too late to make something beautiful.
