Leonardo da Vinci Art Talk at Patchogue-Medford Library

I’ll be leading a discussion on the High Italian Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci at the Patchogue-Medford Library on Wednesday, February 1, from 7:00 – 8:30 PM. The talk is designed for those with little to no prior knowledge of art history and for those with an interest in the art produced during the High Italian Renaissance, specifically the artwork of Leonardo da Vinci.

Artists of this period are known for their close observation of the natural world and the human body, their sophisticated use of iconography, and their innovations in composition, perspective, and design. Come learn about the quintessential “Renaissance Man,” as we examine his paintings and discuss his artwork in an informal setting. This seminar will examine select works of art by Leonardo da Vinci including: the Virgin of the Rocks, Lady with an Ermine, Last Supper, Mona Lisa, and more.

More information regarding the talk can be found here.

For those interested in registering for the event, please find the registration link here, or call the Patchogue-Medford Library at 631-654-4700.

Andrea del Sarto: Creative Process Examined

In conjunction with the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Frick Collection will present Andrea del Sarto: The Renaissance Workshop in Action, the first major monographic exhibition of the artist’s oeuvre in the United States. According to the institution, the exhibition assembles three paintings along with some fifty related drawings, which showcases the artist’s creative process. The artwork borrowed for this exhibition comes from institutions such as the Louvre, the Palazzo Pitti, and the British Museum.

From 1515 until his death, Andrea del Sarto (1486 – 1530) ran one of the most productive workshops in Florence during the height of the Italian Renaissance. A contemporary of Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael, del Sarto’s artwork encompasses the Florentine ideals of design and draftsmanship, and has influenced generations of artists after his death. Falling into obscurity in the early 18th century, del Sarto is well regarded amongst scholars and collectors but remains relatively unknown to the general public. Andrea del Sarto: The Renaissance Workshop in Action brings del Sarto back into the public eye, offering museumgoers a glimpse into the artist’s workshop and artistic process.

Leonardo da Vinci Booklet

A small catalogue created for my High Italian Renaissance course covering Leonardo da Vinci. The list of works consist of the majority of his known paintings and several cartoons. The list also includes several attributed works, some more dubious than others. I thought it would be interesting to see some of the attributed works. I of course, do not own the rights to these images and they are only replicated here for educational purposes only.
