October 24 in the Louvre opens the largest in modern history, a retrospective of the works of Leonardo Da Vinci, dedicated to the 500th anniversary of the artist’s death. The exhibition will feature about 120 paintings, drawings, sculptures and manuscripts.
However, today it is not known what exactly can be seen at the exhibition! But you can definitely enjoy live the Beautiful Ferroniere - work stored in the Louvre, but not exhibited since 2015, as some experts still doubt the authenticity of Leonardo’s hands.
For this reason, the sensational work “Savior of the World”, sold for a record $ 450 million and recently found on a Saudi prince’s yacht, will not be shown at the exhibition - experts have not yet confirmed the absolute authorship of the Italian painter.
The exhibits at this exhibition are represented by the Royal Collection from Buckingham Palace, the British Museum, the National London Gallery, the Vatican Picture Gallery, the Metropolitan Museum, the French Institute and others, so it is safe to say that the exhibition will be truly global, to match the central figure of the exhibition.
Interest in the works of Leonardo is caused not only by talent, but also by the extraordinary personality of the artist. The exhibition will demonstrate how Leonardo comprehended the secret of creating perfect paintings that reveal human nature using images of light, shadow and movement.
The main exhibit, of course, will be the Mona Lisa.
Experts note that Mona Lisa requires special storage. Exposure in other countries is not possible. The painting is painted on a poplar board, which has cracked and may crack during transportation. Recall that the only time the picture was exhibited in Russia in 1974.
You can visit the exhibition until February 24, 2020.
