Rediscover the legacy of Leonardo da Vinci in the most comprehensive exhibition on the Renaissance master to tour the world. Created by Grande Exhibitions with the assistance of the Museo Leonardo da Vinci in Rome and a number of experts in Italy and France, this exhibition brings to life the genius of Leonardo as an inventor, artist, scientist, anatomist, engineer, architect, sculptor, and philosopher.
Working from Leonardo’s codices, Italian artisans have faithfully crafted interactive and life-size machine inventions, including the first concepts of a car, bicycle, helicopter, parachute, SCUBA, a forerunner to the modern military tank, and an ideal city, to name a few. Investigate facsimiles of Leonardo’s most famous codices, anatomical studies, Anghiari battle drawings, and displays of his art in actual size. View a high-definition re-creation of The Last Supper, educational animation presentations of the Vitruvian Man, and one of Leonardo’s most ambitious projects, the Sforza horse sculpture.
In Da Vinci – The Genius, you’ll also gain access to the exclusive Secrets of Mona Lisa exhibition — an analysis of the world’s most famous painting conducted at the Louvre by renowned scientific engineer, examiner, and photographer of fine art, Pascal Cotte.
This revelatory exhibition provides a fascinating insight into not only the mind of a genius, but also into the fundamental scientific and artistic principles that he discovered. Da Vinci – The Genius is an inspiration for the whole family!
This exhibition has been made available by Grande Exhibitions and Pascal Cotte, France.
