News From Leonardo -- An IFAR Evening

There has been no shortage recently of news about Leonardo da Vinci, not least the discovery of new works -- controversial and less controversial, including a Salvador Mundi and a portrait of a young woman, nicknamed La Bella Principessa.  A recent Leonardo exhibition in London set attendance records. In this illustrated talk, Mr. Kemp, one of the world's most distinguished Leonardo specialists, discusses what is happening and where we might go from here.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A, Book Signing and Reception

IFAR gratefully acknowledges THE ROBERT LEHMAN FOUNDATION for partial support of this program.
