What awaits you
How Leonardo worked The exhibition features no less than 162 works by da Vinci himself, as well as by his students. "Madonna in the Grotto", "Saint Anne", "John the Baptist", "Ferroniera Precade", "Vitruvian Man" - these and many other canvases will help you see the artist's approach and methods of work. Studies of paintings using infrared radiation will reveal the artist's technique. With the help of virtual reality technologies, you will see the details of the paintings that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Through the drawings, we will observe an interesting technique for creating folds - I will explain its meaning. And turn to engineering notebooks and anatomical sketches to understand Leonardo's mathematical genius
A value that can hardly be overestimated I will tell you why Leonardo almost never finished work and why he wrote them for decades. I will explain how he differs from other representatives of the Renaissance - and what was his influence on his contemporaries and followers. You will hear about how the artist conducted anatomical experiments, and consider his biography in the context of the era. And finally you will understand what painting was for Leonardo and what mission he assigned to it.
