$9.50 Members, $11 Non-Members
Leonardo da Vinci holds a unique place in art history as one of the most curious and tireless artists to investigate the human body and spirit. Working in a time when the boundaries between art and science began to dissolve, he strove to gain a greater understanding of the working of the universe, and in particular, of man. This lecture will investigate both his anatomical studies, in which he pursued knowledge through direct observation of and experimentation with the natural world, as well as his iconic paintings in which he strove to portray an ideal beauty of man that related to God.
