May I ask if the painter Cimabue also painted the Last Supper? I am trying to draw some comparison between the different paintings of The Last Supper in different eras... But Cimabue (1240-1302) has many famous paintings, but I cannot find any evidence of his artwork of the last supper besides the tag in Wikipedia. Please confirm this thanks

    Interesting question. I don't know if Cimabue painted the Last Supper or not, but this particular artwork is held by the New Orleans Museum of Art which states the artists is "unidentified". Not sure how it ended up attributed to Cimabue on Wikipedia - they claim to have sourced from the Kress Foundation (who donated it to NOMA), but Kress' website likewise lists the artist as "Anonymous". – Semaphore Mar 12 '19 at 6:55
