File:Leonardo da Vinci - Ultima cena - ca 1975.jpg


Nederlands: In de jaren zeventig was Leonardo da Vinci's Het Laatste Avondmaal er bijzonder slecht aan toe. Deze afbeelding heb ik op Commons gezet aangezien er vanuit Wikipedia naar verwezen wordt. De originele pagina is inmiddels veranderd, maar zo kunnen we er toch een koppeling naar bewaren en bovendien de afbeelding rechtstreeks laten zien.
Deutsch: In den siebziger Jahren war Leonardo da Vincis Das Abendmahl in besonders schlechtem Zustand.
English: In the seventies Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper was in a terrible condition.
Date 1495-1498

Curiously, the actual image file is still live here:

The webmaster apparently replaced it when he got a picture of the restored painting, but didn't delete the original picture from before the restoration.


This is a faithful photographic reproduction of an original two-dimensional work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain This work is in the public domain in the United States, and those countries with a copyright term of life of the author plus 100 years or less.
This file has been identified as being free of known restrictions under copyright law, including all related and neighboring rights.

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain, and that claims to the contrary represent an assault on the very concept of a public domain". For details, see Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag.
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain.

Please be aware that depending on local laws, re-use of this content may be prohibited or restricted in your jurisdiction. See Commons:Reuse of PD-Art photographs.
