The High Renaissance was dominated by the work of three artistic giants: Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), Raphael (1483-1520), and Michelangelo (1475-1564). Leonardo represents a transitional figure in the shift to High Renaissance principles. He carried on the fifteenth-century experimental tradition by studying everything and even dissecting human bodies to see more clearly how nature worked. But Leonardo stressed the need to advance beyond such realism and initiated the High Renaissance’s preoccupation with the idealization of nature, or the attempt to generalize from realistic portrayal to an ideal form.

But it is also more. The figure of Philip is idealized, and the work embodies profound psychological dimensions. The words of Jesus that “one of you shall betray me” are experienced directly as each of the apostles reveals his personality and his relationship to Jesus. Through gestures and movement, Leonardo hoped to reveal a person’s inner life.
