Most people think of Leonardo da Vinci as a inventor, painter and artist but rarely as a sculptor. But secretly, Leonardo aspired to be a sculptor and many of his drawings were intended to be utilized as prototypes for sculptures. Fortunately, the Atlanta High Museum of Art is hosting the exhibit entitled “Leonardo da Vinci: The Hand of the Genius” from now thru February 21st. The exhibit highlights the artists contributions to the Renaissance era of sculpture thru over 20 studies and sketches, some of which have never been viewed by the public. Also included in the exhibit are works of Rubens, Donatello, Rustici and Verrocchio, Leonardo’s teacher. One of Verrocchio’s best known works “Beheading of St. John the Baptist” is also on display. But best of all, the High is located only blocks from the Shellmont Inn, a bed and breakfast in Atlanta. What better time to visit Atlanta than early fall when leaves are changing, temps are cooling, seaonal shopping for the holidays is in full swing and art is front and center stage. And when you are looking for the b&b Atlanta experience, come stay with the best! For more info and tickets for Leonardo, call 404-733-4444 or contact the Atlanta High Museum of Art.
