Days of exhibition

100


A stunning selection of works by Leonardo da Vinci from the Royal Library of Turin, including one of his most famous manuscripts: the “Codex on the Flight of Birds”. In it, Leonardo analyzes the flight pattern of birds and from it designs his first flying machines. The latter was to be part of a great treatise on flight divided into four parts, which was never completed. In addition to the Codex the exhibition will also feature the beautiful Head of a Woman (both works will be shown in New York for the first time), as well as an additional selection of drawings by the artist. The exhibition also includes works by Leonardo's followers and the Codex Huygens, a Renaissance manuscript that contains Leonardo's long-lost notes.
