Painter and historian, Giorgio Vasari, who was famous for his Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects biography, often mentioned Leonardo Da Vinci, as an “excellent musician”. Da Vinci was probably inspired during his time at Verrocchio’s workshop, where everything was thought from painting to music…

A very eye-catching, creative ad that speaks clear language against cancer just released. Showing hairless iconic Mona Lisa painting, it conveys a powerful visual message. The main line reads: “A tumor changes your life. Not its value.”. Paraphrased, it tells “life in dignity” ANT (the company behind it – Assistenza socio-sanitaria domiciliare oncologica gratuita e prevenzione)  wanted to show that regardless of the challenges facing the people, the value of their lives remains unchanged, as well as the duty to care for it.

Sketch: Study of an angel. (Leonardo Da Vinci) I like the slant, quick strokes of lines. A smart use of eraser to separate light and shadow density.

The more lines we employ in one place, the darker the figure, hence less light.

Meat, bones, muscles, they are all can be depicted with the heaviness and lightness of lines.

Leonardo da Vinci’s Anatomical Work Explored In New Royal Collection Exhibition

Almost 500 years after Leonardo da Vinci’s death, an exhibition that sheds new light on the his groundbreaking studies of the human body opens this Friday at The Queen’s Gallery, Palace of Holyroodhouse as part of the Edinburgh International Festival. Long renowned as one of the finest artists of the Renaissance, Leonardo was also one of the greatest anatomists the world has ever seen. For the first time ever, the pages from Leonardo’s anatomical notebooks will go on display alongside 21st-century medical imagery, revealing how Leonardo’s work foreshadowed modern techniques, such as MRI scans and 3D computer modelling, to an astonishing degree.

Leonardo or Michelangelo: who is the greatest?

...The Florentine government set up a formal competition between the creators of these startling works. Both were challenged to translate their individual figures into multi-figured history paintings – to splurge their creativity on the grand scale of frescos. We might think it absurd to look at such supreme human treasures and ask which artist is best – but that was what the Florentine republic tried to establish, by getting them to work at public expense on competitive battle paintings, Leonardo's Battle of Anghiari and Michelangelo's Battle of Cascina, for the Great Council Hall of the civic palace. In inventing these vast compositions, both artists went beyond the public perfections of David and the Mona Lisa to create what are arguably their most personal, and tantalising, works. Known today only through traces and memories after the original designs were torn apart, the painted images covered over by later works, these lost battles still burn the imagination. They added another layer of originality to the wonders we still admire in the Louvre and the Accademia.

By 1506, after two years of the competition, the city of Florence was confident it knew who was the best artist, the ultimate genius. The prize was nothing so small as money. It was to decorate Rome itself, to define the look of the Vatican and shape the future of art. Meanwhile the loser left Italy, crossing the Alps to sulk in France, taking his most famous painting with him . . . #DaVinci #Michaelangelo
