Leonardo da Vinci - Exhibition catalogue
Official catalogue of the Leonardo da Vinci exhibition at the Louvre Museum from 24 October 2019 to 24 February 2020.
The year 2019, the fifth centenary of Leonardo da Vinci's death in France, is particularly significant for the Louvre, which has the world's largest collection of Leonardo's paintings and 22 drawings.
This unpublished retrospective of Leonardo's career as a painter shows how much he put painting above all else and how his investigation of the world, which he called "the science of painting", was the instrument of his art, whose ambition was nothing less than to bring life to his paintings.
The result of more than ten years of work, including the renewed scientific examination of the Louvre's paintings and the restoration of three of them, allowing a better understanding of his artistic practice and pictorial technique, the exhibition also clarifies Leonardo's biography by including all the archival documents. It portrays a man and an artist of extraordinary freedom.
