“Leonardo in Rome. Influences and legacy” at Villa Farnesina until the 12th of January 2020, the exhibition that celebrates the 500th anniversary of the death of the great Tuscan Genius, focused on the influences that the artist underwent and exercised in the capital, where he stayed between 1513 and 1517, as a guest of the brother of Pope Leo X, Giuliano dei Medici.
The first part concerns the arrival of Leonardo in Rome, his relationship with Raffaello Sanzio, the mutual influences and the reception of classical models. The aim of the exhibition is to emphasize the influence that Leonardo exercised on Roman painting and vice versa.
The journey continues into the Fregio halls with some autographed drawings by the Tuscan Genius, including two rare masterpieces: “Studies of drapery for a kneeling figure” and the “Incarnate Angel” (never shown in Italy).
Finally, there will be two rooms regarding the activity of the workshop of Leonardo in Rome, through some of his most significant works, such as “Saint John the Baptist” and the “Salvator Mundi”.
Villa Farnesina will be the venue of the exhibition: it is a representative place of the art of the Roman Renaissance, with which Leonardo came into contact once he arrived in the eternal city.
