本展の見どころ

Leonardo Da Vinci — known as a polymath, or universal genius, exhibiting talent as an artist in 15th century Italy, and expanding his interest into the fields of architecture, science and anatomy. Michelangelo Buonarroti — a genius sculptor of the century, whose extraordinary talent was revealed in his teens and who was often called Il Divino (the divine one). This exhibition is the first ever in Japan to compare and contrast these two great artists who excelled at drawings (disegno) which is considered the most important concept to show the competence of artists and is the source of all their artistic creations. The exhibition brings together about 65 pieces, mainly from the Royal Library of Turin and Casa Buonarroti collections, made up of oil paintings, manuscripts, letters, in addition to the drawings. This is a rare opportunity to be able to make a close comparison of what is known as Leonardo’s “most beautiful” drawing “Head of a young woman/Study for the Angel in the Virgin of the Rocks” and Michelangelo’s “Studies for the head of “Leda”

レオナルド・ダ・ヴィンチ(1452-1519)とミケランジェロ・ブオナローティ(1475-1564)

They had a strongly mutual awareness, whether it was the competition for the vast wall painting in the Council Hall of the Palazzo Vecchio, or conflicts arising from their differing ways of thinking. This exhibition falls under the themes of Faces, Paragone of Paintings and Scuptures, Expression of the human body, horses and Architecture, “Leda and the Swan”, Codex, and it is the first time in Japan to have a chance to compare rare drawings by the two artists.

イタリアが生んだ2大天才の素描とは?

Both Leonardo and Michelangelo had pupils and followers, but the for them, the paintings, drawings and sculptures were treated exactly as models to learn from. The pupils would have worked every day to learn by looking closely at their masters’ drawings.

Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Leda and the Swan

Compared to Michelangelo’s work, Leonardo’s Leda and the Swan features a very masculine swan. In the lower left corner, the depiction is based on the Greek myth that " Leda gave birth to two pairs of twins from eggs"
This work is thought to be possibly painted by one of Leonardo’s pupils, and was painted by observing the original painting during the lifetime of Leonardo. Leda poses with flowers in her left hand, looking down at the children, and is a depiction almost the same as the original. This work is part of the collection at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

Michelangelo’s “Leda and the Swan

The original painting by Michelangelo, which was lost, was commissioned by Alphonso d’Este for his palace in Ferrara. Another of his works is a sculpture reminiscent of the figure of “Night” on the tomb of Giuliano de' Medici, depicting the elegant female profile, with Leda and the swan softly facing each other.
The original work has taken to France by Michelangelo 's student, Antonio Mini, but ended up being incinerated in the mid 17th century. Based on the original drawing, this work was produced by a progeny painter, Francesco Brina.

Studies for the head of Leda – the model for this drawing is thought to be one of his student, Antonio Mina. Michelangelo was right handed and used a technique called cross-hatched lines, drawing in the lines so they cross diagonally. Using this technique, he gave the work a three-dimensional feeling, drawing as if to "scrape away". In this work, red chalk is used, skillfully expressing unevenness by shading.
