The work of a great artist - Inventor – Genius, will be at the Beurs van Berlage from the 27th of January until the 20th of June!
Take a look through the eyes of one of the most progressive man in history. Nearly 500 years later, his work is still as popular as ever. Born in Anchiano Italy, near Da Vinci, he studied under Verrocchio, and then moved on to Milan, where he painted “The Last Supper.” He also designed several inventions including the first parachute, which actually seemed to work.
The exhibition presents several works, ranging from replicas of the Mona Lisa to recreated prototypes of his inventions, which were crafted in Italy after the designs Da Vinci made half a century ago. The invention prototypes are often operable for guests which brings the exhibition to life.
During the exhibition you will experience all the myths and legends surrounding his life and how Da Vinci's legacy still inspires even today, challenges and opens a window in the head that allows creativity.
Beurs van Berlage celebrates Da Vinci's birthday
To recall Da Vinci's 565th birthday, Da Vinci was born on April 15 1452, everyone who also celebrates his birthday on April receives a free ticket to the Da Vinci exhibition. To extend the festivities, free workshops and lectures will be organised (for all ages) in May.
Kicking off will be science journalist Diederik Jekel. On Thursday May 11th, he will give a free lecture on the impact Da Vinci's inventions have on the present and the future.
