Exposition Da Vinci

18 November 2019
The year 2019 marks the 500th death anniversary of the Rennaissance’s great Genius, Leonardo da Vinci. On this occasion, an exhibition is entirely dedicated to him in the Louvre.
Leonardo da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452 in Vinci (Tuscany, Italy) and died on May 2, 1519 in Amboise (Touraine,FR).
It is first as a painter that he is recognized. Two of his works, The Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, are world-famous paintings and his drawing of the Vitruvian man is also included in numerous derivative works.

Leonard is also an engineer and inventor, who develops ideas of technological creations far ahead of his time, such as helicopter, plane, submarine and even the automobile. Unfortunately, very few projects are feasible in his lifetime.
Leonardo da Vinci influenced the construction of the castle of Chambord, including the famous spiral staircase, which is in the middle of the castle.

He was also an organizer of shows and parties, scientist, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, urban planner, botanist, musician, poet, philosopher and writer.
