Are you a big fan of Renaissance artwork but have no time or money to fly all over the world to see them in real life? Well, Leonardo da Vinci’s greatest works will be coming to Malaysia. So you might be seeing the Mona Lisa sooner than you expected.
Leonardo da Vinci
Leonardo da Vinci was a man who held interest and skills in many subjects including art, astronomy, engineering, and music. He is considered as one of the greatest artists ever with many of his works of art taking popularity.
In fact, his most famous piece is the Mona Lisa. It has attracted a lot of attention and admiration for the model of the painting who is Lisa Gehrardini.
In the painting her expression is almost mysterious while she holds herself with absolute grace and composition.
Despite whatever level of knowledge you might have of art, there will definitely be art that you can appreciate. Whether it is the subject, the skills, or some deep level of relatable interpretation.
The Leonardo Opera Omnia Exhibition
Leonardo Opera Omnia is an exhibition that celebrates the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death. Of course the real paintings will not be brought here.
However, there will be high-definition digital reproduction of his famous work which is displayed in the real dimensions of each actual painting.
We hear that the Mona Lisa is smaller than what many people expect.
There will be a total of 17 reproduced paintings. Amongst them you will find ‘Lady with an Ermine’, ‘The Last Supper’, ‘Annunciation’, and ‘Head of a Woman’.
Visiting this exhibition will bring you to when a Renaissance man was at the peak of his time. It also shows insight to the explosion of growth of science and art during that period.
