Leonardo da Vinci is acclaimed as the world’s favorite artist. Many TV shows and feature films have showcased his extraordinary genius but fail to examine the most crucial element of all: his art. Leonardo’s peerless paintings and drawings are the focus of Leonardo: The Works, as Exhibition on Screen presents every single attributed painting, in Ultra HD quality, as never before seen on the big screen. Key works include Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, Lady with an Ermine, Ginevra de’ Benci, Madonna Litta, Virgin of the Rocks, and more than a dozen others.
This film also looks afresh at Leonardo’s life—his inventiveness, his sculptural skills, his military foresight, and his ability to navigate the treacherous politics of the day—all through the prism of his art. Released on the 500th anniversary of his death, this is the definitive film about Leonardo, the first to truly tell the whole story. 2019, U.K., DCP, 85 minutes. Recommended for 13+.
