October 20th 2019 – February 20th 2020
One of the biggest events of the season in the art worls, opened on October 24th 2019 in France. What are the hightlights of this exhibition? The inclusion of unique works of Leonardo “L’Uomo Vitruviano” (The Vitruvian Man), that this year we saw at the Galleria dell’Accademia in Venice back in June. It is typically shown every six years because it’s so fragile and this year we were lucky enough to see it. You can see it at the Louvre until February 20th 2020.
The Louvre owns four other paintings by Leonardo—The Virgin of the Rocks, La Belle Ferronnière, Saint John the Baptist, and Saint Anne, comprising about one-third of all the paintings attributed to Leonardo—and they will all be in the show as well as the Mona Lisa.
Salvator Mundi, the painting now in Saudi Arabia where the owner resides is still not sure to be part of the exhibition.
A visit is worth it since Delieuvin and Frank, who have worked for realizing this project for ten years, are convinced that you’ll learn something totally new about the career of Leonardo da Vinci.
