Leonardo and the Origins of the Collection

Lecture no. 2 from the course: Museum Masterpieces: The Louvre

Leonardo and the Origins of the Collection

Taught by Professor Richard Brettell | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses

Francis I sparked an artistic revolution in the 16th century by attracting Leonardo da Vinci to France and creating a rivalry between French and Italian art. Leonardo's La Joconde (The Mona Lisa) serves as the anchor for a lecture exploring works by Italian painters, including Raphael, as well as earlier French painters.
