April 15, 2020 • 20 Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci [Leonardo da Vinci] probable self portrait Leonardo Da Vinci was born April 15, 1452,in the Tuscan hill town of Vinci,in the lower valley of the Arno river in the territoryof the Medici-ruled Republic of Florence. He is one of the leading artists of the High Renaissancewho needs no introduction. I had the great fortune to see a huge exhibition held in London,in 1989 at the Hayward Gallery of his paintings and inventions. An experience to remember… So here are some of his paintings [Mona Lisa excluded! 😉] The Annunciation Ginevra de’ Benci Salvator Mundi Study of five grotesque heads Virgin of the Rocks A deluge A young woman holds an ermine in her arms Rhombicuboctahedron as published in Pacioli’s Divina proportione The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne and the Infant Saint John the Baptist Design for a Flying Machine La Belle Ferroniere Study of arms and hands Study of horse Bacchus Studies of water passing obstacles and falling Paisagem do Arno Profile of a Young_Fiancee The Last Supper ✿ Qui habitat Josquin des Prez [c.1450/1455 – 1521] Performed : Huelgas Ensemble • Dir : Paul Van Nevel ✿ Enjoy! ✿ Be Safe 🏡 Rate this:Share this:Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Soundcloud (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Click to email a link to a friend (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading...

Not to be a Philistine or anything, but La Belle Ferroniere appears to be giving someone the stink eye.
A ha ha… very much so!!!!!! 😉
It’s not just me, then!
No! That look is lethal! 🤣
Crazy religious chant music! Very hypnotic. Leonardo was WAY before his time.
Yet, he helped lead us to our time, and still leads on.
Crazy and then some! I seriously doubt if music will ever reach those heights again. That was music for the spirit and uplifting in a very different way than we say it today.
As for Leonardo, you’re right… he still is! 🙂
Thank you, my sweet friend!
Thank you! I loved seeing all those images!
The great genius! To see his paintings and drawings is always the highlight of any trip to the museum. Thanks for this one.
Oh, yes it is!!!!!! Enjoyed the Archimedean solid, Rhombicuboctahedron? 😉
My pleasure, my friend! 🙂
That rhombicuboctahdron is not only hard to spell, but a challenge to puzzle out. As an artist he loved mathematics and I think he was driven crazy by the golden proportion. As I was for a while. But I think I recovered.
Good to hear!!!!! 😉
Lovely post dear Marina 🌺♥️🤗🌹
Thank you, my dear Holly. An unsurpassed genius…
