Event Description The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library welcomes back art historian Linda Blair with a new lecture series, Leonardo. For many years now, Blair has been one of the Athenaeum’s most popular speakers. Due to popular demand the same lecture is being offered two nights per week. See our website for details. How can we stretch our mere mortal minds to grasp Leonardo da Vinci’s genius in so many areas—science and art, engineering, mathematics, optics, geology, anatomy? The lecture series will cover the times and events leading up to Leonardo and then examine his life and works in detail. The lecture on Jan 21 and 25 is titled \"Tracing the Arc of the Renaissance.\" Donatello opens the 1400s with sculpture that promulgates the humanist concept of man, discoveries which were carried forth by Masaccio, a painter of unprecedented originality. We conclude the Renaissance with the art of the saintly monk, Fra Angelico, followed by Fra Filippo Lippi—“the healthy monk,” as a shocked Victorian called him. Botticelli will bring the 1400s to a close.
