LEONARDO DA VINCI AND BILL VIOLA

LEONARDO DA VINCI AND BILL VIOLA

It is the first time ever that The Angel in the flesh by Leonardo (formerly in the Royal Collection at Windsor Castle) is shown in the Americas, and it will be interacting with The Last Angel by Bill Viola (video/sound installation).

The Theatre sheet, formerly in the Codex Atlanticus, Milan, includes its two fragments cut out in the late sixteenth century and now next to each other at last! It was recently shown at the National Museum, Palazzo Venezia, Rome and was exhibited for the first time in North America in Chicago two years ago at the Museum of Science.

Prof. Carlo Pedretti, in attendance,  was instrumental to get the Codex Leicester for Mr Hammer UCLA.

Bill Viola will present the installation The Last Angel as well as a very powerful video The Greeting (10 minutes) which proves that Pontormo was a student of Leonardo.
