"Between 1494 and 1498, Leonardo da Vinci painted one of the great Western masterpieces directly onto the wall of the refectory of the Santa Maria Della Grazie church in Milan and it immediately started to deteriorate. Leonardo: The Last Supper documents the process by which, after nearly 500 years and various 'restorations,' conservators attempted to get the work as close as possible to its original state."
