Vintage religious postcard reproduction of The Last Supper with Jesus and the Apostles. The postcard was created in the 1930’s from a stained-glass window reproduction, in Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Glendale, CA of the famous painting by Leonardo da Vinci. Although the original painting was done in the 15th-century as a mural painting for the monastery of Santa Maria d’elle Grazie in Milan, Italy, this image is of the window in California, so we included it in our Vintage American collection. The window was created in jewel-like glass by Rosa Caselli Moretti, last of her family possessing the secret of the magnificent stained glass since the twelfth century. The twice life-size figure of Judas broke five times in the furnace. After seven years of hard work this masterpiece was dedicated at Forest Lawn in 1931 to be a perpetual inspiration to all mankind.
