Exhibition on Screen – Leonardo
16th January 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm£14
Award-winning writer and director Phil Grabsky travelled to 8 countries to film virtually all the attributed Leonardo works in situ. The film includes the much-discussed Salvator Mundi which the film believes firmly is a Leonardo work, the little-known Salle delle Asse (Leonardo’s largest work), the recently restored Adoration of the Magi and also, shown after its recent conservation work in a film for the first time, the Lansdowne Madonna.
Leonardo: The Works also offers privileged access to the Mona Lisa (here seen in extraordinary detail), as well as the 2 Leonardos side-by-side at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg; it is a genuine ‘feast for the eyes’. Guiding the narrative biography of the man some claim is the greatest mind in history are the world’s leading experts, historians and curators – here speaking candidly with great knowledge and humour.
