Leonardo da Vinci. The Turin drawings

19.9.19, 19:30-20:30 | Dr. Enrica Pagella, Director of Musei Reali Torino. Free admission!

The drawings by Leonardo in the Royal Library of Turin, now part of the Royal Museums, consist of thirteen folios of different subjects and illustrate, even though in a cursory form, the artist career from youth to maturity. Some drawings are related to well-known and celebrated works by the great master, others refer to mechanics and anatomy, as well as figure drawings, taking up and bringing together some of the crucial issues in Leonardo’s studies. There is also the unique, universally renowned and celebrated Portrait of an Old Man, considered to be a Self Portrait of Leonardo. The Royal Library also acquired in 1893 what is known as the Codex on the Flight of Birds, dated 1505-06, which shows the entire development of Leonardo’s work on the creation of a flying machine.
