One Response to Winter 2012

    Regarding Olivier Bauers article “A rat on the plate”

    When I was in Milan a few years ago I found a painting of The Last Supper also with a “rat” on the plate in front of Jesus. link: to my picture:

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/23663594/IMG_0445.JPG

    It is in the San Maurizio Monastero Maggiore in Milan. I think some Luini painted this version and it is to be found on the same street as Da Vincis more famous Last supper.

    Do you know about this painting? Does it clarify anything on your analysis in the text from the article?

    Kind regards
