On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death, and to coincide with the Louvre’s blockbuster exhibition about the artist, Agenda is partnering with the National Art School to invite you to a three-part series of talks about European art history.
Your host and presenter will be Paris-based art commentator, Jacques Le Roux. Over three nights, he will talk about Leonardo da Vinci, the iconic Notre Dame de Paris and the three masters of the Renaissance – Leonardo, Michelangelo and Rafael.
LEONARDO DA VINCI TALK – 26 NOVEMBER
HUMANIST AND VISIONARY
When Leonardo da Vinci died in Amboise in 1519, nobles and scholars of the time wept over the loss of a great man rather than a great artist. Five centuries later, he is regarded as an unsurpassable ideal. Now, as then, his spirit and his art represent the fundamental qualities of the genius and the gentleman. His curiosity towards both nature and culture, his universal way of thinking, and his quest for progress to serve his community make him a benchmark for artists and scientists, as well as politicians and philosophers.
This talk asks the question: how has the great master Leonardo da Vinci inspired us across the centuries?
