LEONARDO DA VINCI, THE GENIUS

CULTURE & TRADITION
-
"All admire the genius, few know the man."
Christian Gálvez. Exhibition curator


The story of Leonardo is a true odyssey, the tragedy of a man tired of painting, notorious in Italian lands for not completing commissions and condemned for his critical and investigative spirit. A strange figure who refused to bow to any dogma and, at the same time, had a chameleonic desire to corrupt his ideals in search for the gratitude and recognition that never came.


This is the story I want to tell. I realise that the patina of genius that has settled upon his figure over the centuries is not easy to detach and yet his image of a mortal man, made of flesh and bone, with successes and mistakes, victories and failures, does not cease to be more attractive and more powerful.


A man who lived and survived. A man. Faces of the genius remains an eternal tribute to the features of Leonardo. And to the traits that converted him into a superior or inferior individual, but undoubtedly a special spirit. This exhibition will show you that in the universe of Leonardo there is always more than meets the eye. Welcome to the world of Leonardo
