9 November 2023: The Rivalry: Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo

By Dr James Lindow

While Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo are two of the most familiar figures in Italian Renaissance art, the antipathy that existed between them remains a story without an author.
This lecture throws light on these themes and, using select examples of their works, attempts to understand the motivations for their animosity. Particular emphasis is given to the commission bestowed upon them to undertake frescoes for the great chamber in Florence.

As usual, there will be three lectures on this day. The cost will be £40 per participant to include tea/coffee and a sandwich lunch.
