“Leonardo da Vinci and his Unfinished Work”,
Carmen C. Bambach

Thursday, September 5, 2019
6:30 – 7:30 pm, Minneapolis Institute of Art


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 and an Art historian of Italian Renaissance. She has authored more than seventy scholarly articles, ten exhibition catalogues, and curated blockbuster exhibitions on Leonardo and Michelangelo. Her four-volume book, Leonardo da Vinci Rediscovered, was published this summer by Yale University Press.


Co-presented with the Minneapolis Institute of Art, Prints & Drawings Affinity Group, and the University of Minnesota's Department of Art History and program in the History of Medicine.
