Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, Vitruvian Man…these are all artistic creations by Leonardo da Vinci, who lived from 1452 to 1519. And what went into the creations of his work? You can find out at an Art Talk on da Vinci this Wednesday at Patchogue-Medford Library.
Jay Schuck, who works at Patchogue-Medford Library as a Page, will be leading the lecture. In addition to being at the library, he teaches art history classes at the Islip Art Museum, works with the Patchogue Arts Council as an Assistant Curator & Exhibitions Assistant and regularly curates art exhibits throughout Suffolk County.
The talk will be covering da Vinci’s life, background on what living in Italy was like during the Italian Renaissance period and what role the artist had in society during the 15th century.
This lecture is free to the community, and prior knowledge of da Vinci’s background will not be necessary. That said, anyone that does have a background on the Italian Renaissance already will be a step ahead.
The event will take place in Meeting Room B from 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m. Registration is encouraged, and can be done online by clicking here or by calling 631-654-4700.
