From July 21 to October 18
The National Gallery of Prague invites us to the exhibition “Leonardo – an inspiring genius” organized in the Graphic Cabinet of Schwarzenberg Palace, and which will remain open to the public until October 18. Curated by Dalibor Lešovský, the exhibition includes works based on the creations of Leonardo da Vinci or freely inspired by his artistic genius that influenced many generations of artists over time. Visitors will be able to admire the drawings of Jan Zrzavý and Vilém Kandler, the prints of Albrecht Dürer and William Hogarth and a copper plate from a drawing by Peter Paul Rubens. The central piece of the exhibition is the engraving Salvator Mundi by Wenceslaus Hollar, an etching from 1650 copied from an original by Leonardo that is surrounded by a halo of mystery.
