The Uffizi Gallery in Florence opened a new exhibit featuring works by Leonardo da Vinci. The show is one of many in a larger program called the Universal Leonardo being presented by the Council of Europe.
The Leonardo da Vinci exhibit at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence is called “The Mind of Leonardo, The Universal Genius at Work”. The show will highlight Leonardo da Vinci’s art as well as his contributions to science.
The Uffizi Gallery exhibit has Leonardo da Vinci’s famous self-portrait as well as his tragic, unfinished painting of St. Jerome in the Desert. Along with his art, models of his inventions and experiments will be on display.
The exhibit at the Uffizi Gallery explores the link between his scientific studies, inventions and art. In addition to Florence, exhibits of Leonardo da Vinci’s works will take place in Budapest, Munich, London and Oxford. Each site will feature different aspects of Leonardo da Vinci’s genius.
The exhibits are intended to be educational and will feature films, functioning models and virtual displays.
The show at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence was created by the Florence History of Science Museum.
