Famous Italian painter, inventor, and scientist Leonardo Da Vinci died 500 decades back. The National Gallery in London is displaying one of the paintings in a novel manner by imitating its initial setting.
“The Virgin of the Rocks” was displayed in a church in Milan which has since been ruined.
Da Vinci spent about 25 years working on the painting and finished it in about 1508.
“The notion would be to utilize immersive experience and also to use digital technologies to research this fantastic masterpiece,” the gallery’s manager Gabriele Finaldi explained.
“We carry the general public on a trip through the distances that Leonardo was comfortable with, throughout the arenas that he had been comfortable with. His fascination with optics and light, the church where he painted the image no longer exists, and also the altar bit, we create an evocation of their first set of this painting”.
However, he inexplicably left it for the model which may be viewed now.
“He makes two-dimensional shape look three-dimensional and living, and he does this through his great research of optics,” the exhibit’s curator Caroline Campbell stated.
“He’s somebody who in the time he is working at this particular painting, is knowing we see through distinct things, we see light in various ways.”
Leonardo has been considered by most of the greatest Renaissance genius.
