Day School - Leonardo da Vinci

Ref: C3530669

Leonardo da Vinci was a man before his time. His drawings can be argued as being futuristic and possibly prophetic. His paintings show a deep understanding of the underlying human anatomy. They also show a sensitivity of human expression, which has elevated his painting, Mona Lisa, to legendary status and the focus of a particularly well known song. This course will look at not only his work, but the man himself and the influences and passions that drove him.
