‘National Geographic’, May 2019 Issue Has A Lavishly Illustrated Article On ‘Leonardo da Vinci’ For His 500th Anniversary.
The incomparable Leonardo da Vinci died 500-years ago, today — i.e., May 2, 1519.
The ‘National Geographic‘ article is to commemorate this. I haven’t had a chance to but just glance through it — feasting my eyes on the pictures and graphics. As I so often say, only NatG has the resources, expertise and motivation to do these lavish, eye-watering graphic projects.
Just wanted to give you a heads up, in case you too are interested. Enjoy.
A good overview IF you are not that familiar with him.
Indubitably one of my favorite artists of all time and across all genres. He was magical. In my book one of five GIANTS of the Renaissance, the other four being: Michelangelo, Titian, Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael.
His paintings are so timeless and mesmerizing. What a talent?
What an age that was. All these great artist, all in Italy, more or less at the same time.
Just spare a thought. He died over 500 year ago. 500 years!
