INTORNO A LEONARDO. DISEGNI ITALIANI DEL RINASCIMENTO


In honour of the celebrations that, in 2019, will mark the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death, one of the most prized treasures guarded by the Musei Reali di Torino (Royal Museums of Turin) - da Vinci’s famous self-portrait, the Portrait of a Man in Red Chalk - will once again be on show at the city’s Biblioteca Reale (Royal Library) from 7th July to 15th September this year, together with part of the extraordinary collection of drawings, the fruit of enlightened purchases by King Charles Albert of Sardinia.

This white-haired man with long hair and beard yet broadly receding hairline and a frowning countenance is the striking image of Leonardo associated the world over with the famous Florentine painter, scientist and engineer. Also on display will be a selection of over forty Italian drawings from the 15th and 16th centuries corresponding to as many artists cited by Giorgio Vasari in his Lives, the true fil rouge running through the exhibition.

The Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects (Le vite de’ più eccellenti pittori, scultori, e architettori) by Giorgio Vasari, published in its first edition in 1550 and then, in definitive form, in 1568, constitutes an essential handbook of Italian art up until the sixteenth century and an indispensable model for art historiography. In addition to the famous work by Leonardo da Vinci, the exhibition features excellent examples of the work of Tuscan and Venetian Renaissance artists such as Francesco di Giorgio Martini and Marco Zoppo; a sheet attributed to the young Raphael and various works by some of his finest students; a study by Michelangelo for the head of the Sibilla Cumana painted on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel; one of the rare drawings by the Venetian artist Lorenzo Lotti; and fine examples of the elegance of Emilian and Venetian Mannerism, from Parmigianino to Andrea Schiavone. Of especial interest are the studies of Ancient Roman architecture, from those contained in the architectural treatise, Trattato di architettura civile e militare, by Francesco di Giorgio Martini to those from the notebook of Girolamo da Carpi.
