AH 325 Leonardo da Vinci: Art, Myth, and Innovation


This seminar explores the life and work of Leonardo da Vinci—perhaps one of the best known, but most mysterious artists in the Western tradition. In this course, we examine Leonardo’s many paintings, drawings, and writings in order to situate him within a broader cultural context. Special attention is given to his voluminous notebooks with their studies of weaponry, machinery, human anatomy, and hydraulics.
