Paramount Presents: Exhibition on Screen – Leonardo: The Works
Live Broadcasts | 11/15/2019 | 7:00PM
Leonardo da Vinci as you’ve never seen him before.
Directed by Phil Grabsky
Running time: 85 minutes
Leonardo da Vinci is acclaimed as the world’s favorite artist. Many TV shows and feature films have showcased this extraordinary genius but often not examined closely enough is the most crucial element of all: his art. Leonardo’s peerless paintings and drawings will be the focus of Leonardo: The Works, as Exhibition on Screen presents every single attributed painting, in Ultra HD quality, never seen before on the Big Screen. Key works include The Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, Lady with an Ermine, Ginevra de’ Benci, Madonna Litta, Virgin of the Rocks, and more than a dozen others.
This film also looks afresh at Leonardo’s life – his inventiveness, his sculptural skills, his military foresight, and his ability to navigate the treacherous politics of the day – through the prism of his art. To be released on the 500th anniversary of his death, this is the definitive film about Leonardo: the first to truly tell the whole story.
