The Leonardo Da Vinci Exhibition at Milan


    THE Exhibition of Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519) which has been staged in the Palazzo dell’ Arte in Milan is a truly comprehensive and magnificent testimony to the many-sided activities of the great master. Endeavour has been made not only to collect exhaustive examples of his multifarious interests, but also to illustrate his personal environment and record, and thus ensure a finer appreciation of the man himself. There are galleries devoted to documents connected with his life-history, to his library, and to portraiture of him both in painting and sculpture. To provide background, other rooms show the work of his masters, his contemporaries at Florence and at Milan, and the pupils of his school.
