WORKS BY LEONARDO DA VINCI ON VIEW AT THE MORGAN LIBRARY & MUSEUM THIS FALL
The genius of Leonardo da Vinci—draftsman, painter, scientist, inventor—continues to captivate us almost five hundred years after his death. This fall, the Morgan Library & Museum will present a unique opportunity to encounter this great Renaissance master.
The exhibition will feature a spectacular group of works by Leonardo from the Biblitoeca Reale, Turin, including one of his most famous manuscripts, the Codex on the Flight of Birds, and his wonderful Head of a Young Woman, both on view in New York for the first time. They will be presented together with a selection of other drawings by Leonardo, featuring the scientist as well as the artist. The exhibition will also include works by Leonardo’s followers and the Morgan’s Codex Huygens, a Renaissance manuscript recording lost notes by Leonardo.
