Jonathan Pevsner: The Meaning of Leonardo da Vinci after 500 Years

Friday September 6, 2019
4:00PM-5:00PM
Description

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was one of the most fascinating individuals in history. He is the creator of what may be the world’s two most famous paintings: the Last Supper and the Mona Lisa. He was also a brilliant scientist and engineer. He made dozens of original anatomical discoveries, and he invented hundreds of devices (from ball bearings to a steam cannon). Join Dr. Jonathan Pevsner for a talk exploring Leonardo’s remarkable life to try to understand the nature of his creativity and his integrative approach to the arts and sciences. On the 500th anniversary of Leonardo’s death, Pevsner invites us to consider Leonardo’s lessons today and how they may inspire us to approach life and learning in an interdisciplinary way.
