At some point we've all seen the self portrait of Leonardo done late in life. It is rarely displayed, with issues that conservators in Turin are grappling with to save the work. Those issues are examined in this panel. A copy accompanies it.
And then there's The Vitruvian Man. Its original is at the Gallerie dell'Academia in Venice.
This is St. John The Baptist. The original is in the Louvre.
Numerous contemporary reproductions based on Leonardo's designs or creations were found here. That includes this bicycle- not created from the mind of the genius, but thought to be a hoax.
This device, however, was a genuine Leonardo creation. He devised a horizontal drill to bore holes in trees for the purpose of making wooden water pipes.
The Virgin and Child With St. Anne and John The Baptist resides today at the National Gallery in London.
Madonna Litta is at left, a disputed attribution to Leonardo that resides in the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. At right is Madonna Of The Carnation, which is in Munich.
I liked this quote on the wall.
The original resides in a gallery in Krakow. This is Lady With An Ermine.
St. Jerome In The Wilderness is an unfinished work that now resides in the Vatican Museums. We carry on from here tomorrow.
