Leonardo da Vinci is acclaimed as the world’s favourite artist. Many TV shows and feature films have showcased his extraordinary genius, but often not examined closely enough is the most crucial element of all: his art.
Leonardo’s peerless paintings and drawings will be the focus of LEONARDO: THE WORKS, which presents every single attributed painting in Ultra HD quality – something never seen before on the big screen. Key works include ‘The Mona Lisa’, ‘The Last Supper’, ‘Lady with an Ermine’, ‘Ginevra de’ Benci’, ‘Madonna Litta’, ‘Virgin of the Rocks’ and more than a dozen others.
This film also looks afresh at Leonardo’s life – his inventiveness, his sculptural skills, his military foresight and his ability to navigate the treacherous politics of the day – through the prism of his art. To be released on the 500th anniversary of his death, this is the definitive film about Leonardo – the first to truly tell the whole story.
The screening at Arts, Cambridge on Mon 4 Nov at 18:30 iincludes an introduction with Professor Martin Kemp.
