Celebratory Unveiling: A New Sculpture of Leonardo da Vinci
October 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
2019 is the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death, and exhibitions and celebrations are being held all over the world in his honor. For those on the North Shore that wish to participate in the global celebration, The Studio of Jonathan Sherman is hosting an event for the unveiling of a new bronze sculpture, The Joy of Learning: A Portrait of Leonardo da Vinci. There will be refreshments and a brief talk by Jonathan on his relationship with the Renaissance master.
“Leonardo has been a guiding light for me for many years. I have studied thoroughly with the mind of an artist all of his drawings and paintings, which have awoken within me a richer appreciation for the subtleties of the world in which I live,” said Sherman. “Through my intimacy with Leonardo’s work, coupled with having lived for many years in the center of Florence, Italy, the city that supported Leonardo’s early artistic development, a spiritual kinship was fostered between myself and the Renaissance master. This enabled me to endow the portrait with a sense of his spirit, in addition to a physical likeness.”
Come join in the magnificence of Leonardo and be a part of his lasting legacy on October 10!
