Leonardo da Vinci: Hand of the Genius

Leonardo da Vinci: Hand of the Genius
October 3, 2009–February 21, 2010

High Museum of Art
Atlanta, GA

Leonardo da Vinci pushed the limits of every scientific and artistic area he explored. He was
not only a genius, but an excellent student and teacher. Leonardo da Vinci: Hand of the Genius
shows the grand plans he had for a wide range of sculptural works, the art that inspired him,
and the influence he had on a younger generation of artists. Students will have the opportunity
to admire more than twenty original drawings by Leonardo and trace his thought process as
he considered art, science, technology, and anatomy. Impressive bronze, marble, and terracotta
sculptures by Leonardo’s teachers and students—as well as a few small and exceedingly rare
sculptures by the master himself—will be on view.
