Da Vinci Decoded


This winter’s Leonardo da Vinci exhibit at London’s National Gallery represented the most complete display of the genius’ rare and revolutionary paintings ever gathered in one place. Leonardo da Vinci: Painter at the Court of Milan closed on February 5, but don’t despair if you didn’t shell out the scratch for a plane ticket and wait in queues that stretched for blocks to catch a glimpse of the sold-out show. You can approximate the experience (minus the crowds) at Leonardo Live, an HD movie featuring close-ups of the stunning artwork paired with informative expert commentary from art historians and restorers. BAM has just added an encore screening of the movie this Sunday, so you still have a chance to see a side-by-side comparison of two different versions of Madonna on the Rocks and hear about the clues da Vinci left about the identities of his models, including the Mona Lisa. Tickets are $12 and are likely to sell out, so be sure to secure one while you still can.
