Giovanni Gazzaneo, Mark Gisbourne


In his most recent works Lorenzo Puglisi reinterprets masterpieces of art history and icons from the collective visual memory. With the painting Il Grande Sacrificio, the Italian artist shares his reverence for his colleague Leonardo da Vinci and his famous Last Supper. This volume documents Puglisi’s homage, which is painted on a wood panel six meters long: strong brushstrokes of white paint on an otherwise black background emphasize only the faces and gestures of Jesus and his apostles. Il Grande Sacrificio will be exhibited in Milan to commemorate the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death-on the other side of the wall upon which the Last Supper hangs in Santa Maria delle Grazie church. Apart from installations views from Milan, the book also presents paintings from the past years, painted on wood, canvas, and paper.
