Léonard de Vinci et la Renaissance italienne : Dessins de la collection des Beaux-Arts de Paris

From thursday 24 january 2019 to thursday 18 april 2019

Cabinet de dessins Jean Bonna

14 rue Bonaparte, 75006

Exhibiting thirty drawings by masters of the Italian Renaissance, testifying to the studio practices of the end of the 15th and early 16th centuries, Beaux-Arts de Paris pays homage to Leonardo da Vinci and his contemporaries.

On this occasion, Beaux-Arts de Paris is presenting a set of in situ masterpieces for the first time, including four drawings by Leonardo da Vinci received as donations in 1883 and 1908, as well as drawings by other prestigious painters, contemporaneous to the master: Raphaël with three drawings executed before his departure for Rome, in particular a study for a Madonna and Child and studies of drapery and the profile of a man, as well as Benozzo Gozzoli and Filippino Lippi whose drawings appeal through the technique of metal point on coloured paper that was very popular in Florence at the time.
