Carmen C. Bambach | Leonardo da Vinci and His Unfinished Work

The most famous genius of the Renaissance, Leonardo da Vinci was notorious for leaving projects unfinished, especially paintings. This reputation has persisted into our time. The talk will explore Leonardo’s non finito (the “unfinished”) within the larger context of his thought and work.

Carmen C. Bambach, PhD, is curator of drawings and prints at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She is the curator of blockbuster exhibitions on Leonardo and Michelangelo. Her four-volume book, Leonardo da Vinci Rediscovered, was published this summer by Yale University Press.

Co-presented by the Prints & Drawings Affinity Group, the Italian Cultural Center of Minneapolis/St. Paul, and the University of Minnesota’s Department of Art History and Program in the History of Medicine.
