Gallery Talk, Is It Leonardo?

Laurence Kanter
Wednesday, July 11, 2018, 12:30 pm

Where did Leonardo da Vinci learn to paint, and how did he surpass the lessons of his teachers? How is it possible to recognize Leonardo’s early work, and is it possible to believe that he might have contributed to well-known paintings not previously thought to be his? These and other questions will be discussed in this close-looking exercise with Laurence Kanter, Chief Curator and the Lionel Goldfrank III Curator of European Art.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Leonardo: Discoveries from Verrocchio’s Studio and followed by a book signing of the accompanying exhibition catalogue, Leonardo: Discoveries from Verrocchio’s Studio, Early Paintings and New Attributions, by Laurence Kanter.

Space is limited. Please meet in the Gallery lobby.
