Titian’s Lost Last Supper

A New Workshop Discovery

The story of a large-scale lost Titian work that hung unnoticed in a parish church in England for more than a century.

This intriguing book investigates the revelation that a long-ignored painting of the Last Supper, on display in a Herefordshire church for 111 years, was in fact a long-lost masterpiece. In 2018, as the painting underwent much-needed restoration, conservator and art historian Ronald Moore discovered a signature on the painting—that of Tiziano Vecellio, the sixteenth-century Italian painter known as Titian. 

After more than ten thousand hours of research and translation, the full history of the painting has been revealed. Extensive scientific examination and the removal of centuries of discolored varnish revealed some figures in the painting to be members of Titian’s family and even a rare self-portrait of the master himself. Moore’s extensive research, presented alongside seventy illustrations, culminates in a denouement unparalleled in Renaissance art.
