This exhibition features 65 drawings by Anthony Panzera based on Leonardo da Vinci’s notes and drawings on the human form retrieved from some 7,000 pages of Leonardo’s notebooks. Panzera’s drawings and additional information sheets illustrate entries from Leonardo’s notes on the relative proportions of the head, torso, leg, foot, arm, hand, and whole body, and exemplify the humanistic orientation and intellectual concerns of Leonardo da Vinci.
