Suor Plautilla Nelli (Italian,1524-1588) ~ The Last Supper ~ Santa Maria Novella, Refectory ~ Florence ~ In need of restoration, this panel stretches for more than five meters and reflects Nelli’s love for descriptive realism and remains one of the artist’s few signed works. The Latin inscription that follows her name is especially noteworthy: ‘S. Plautilla. Orate Pro Pictora’ (‘Suor Plautilla. Pray for the Paintress’).
