Hear from the Curator

Helen Burnham, Pamela and Peter Voss Curator of Prints and Drawings, describes the intimate exhibition "Leonardo da Vinci and the Idea of Beauty," on view in the Torf Gallery from April 15 to June 14, 2015. From "the most beautiful drawing in the world," to Leonardo's observation of the imperfections of old age and the loveliness of ideal youth, and the rarely displayed Codex on Flight, Burnham explains how these Italian treasures give us clues as to the eye, hand, and ever curious mind of Leonardo, the original Renaissance man.
