Event Description:
DESCRIPTION: A beautiful body perishes, but a work of art dies not. ~ Leonardo da Vinci. Come be invigorated by the engaging Ms. Cocciardi as she reveals new and little-known aspects of artist Leonardo da Vincis life, work, and his passion for interlocking knots. Enter Luca Pacioli, the famous Renaissance mathematician, who becomes Leonardos apprentice and who plays a major role in his art masterpieces from The Last Supper to the Mona Lisa. Then there is Isabella dEste, patron of the arts and hostess to Leonardo and Luca when, in 1499, fl eeing the perils of war, their Covid-19 moment, the men took refuge in her castle. The sojourn creates a sketch by Leonardo of Isabella with a promise to be followed by a color portrait of the Marchesa. Discover the intrigue of the relationships of the apprentice, the master and the Renaissance woman and her unfinished, unpainted portrait that will intertwine their lives forever.
