Vincent van Gogh.
Spanish surrealist Salvador Dali. The title of the painting is Sacrament of the Last Supper.
The Vitruvian Man It was created by Leonardo da Vinci around the year 1492. The drawing and text are sometimes called the Canon of Proportions or, less often, Proportions of Man. It is on display in the Gallerie dell’ Accademia in Venice, Italy.
A mural There are many different styles and techniques. The best-known is probably fresco, which uses water soluble paints with a damp lime wash. Murals of sorts, date to prehistoric times, such as the paintings on the Caves of Lascaux in southern France, but the term became famous with the Mexican “muralista” art movement (Diego Rivera, David Siqueiros, or JosE Orozco).
