The Musée du Louvre will be launching a massive exhibition on Leonardo da Vinci this October. The extensive presentation will bring together a decade of da Vinci’s practice spanning paintings and drawings while also highlighting conservation methods behind the popular collection of masterpieces on display such as the Mona Lisa (1503) and his earlier pieces including Portrait de femme, did la Belle Ferronniére (1490-96). This year also marks the 500-year anniversary of the Italian master.

Recently, the Louvre announced that it will be enforcing timed tickets for the exhibition in an effort to control the large crowds. The tickets will be made available at 30-minute intervals on the museum’s website. According to The Art Newspaper, the museum is most attended on the planet with over 10 million visitors last year and roughly 25,000 to 50,000 visitors daily. “This will enable us to manage the flow of visitors and prevent them from queuing,” said Jean-Luc Martinez, the Louvre’s president-director to the publication. “It’s about changing our visitors’ habits.”

“Leonardo da Vinci” will run through October 24 until February 24, 2020. Head over to the Louvre’s website for tickets and further details.

In the realm of contemporary art, Galerie Perrotin’s New York location will host three solo exhibitions this week with new works by Paola Pivi, Claude Rutault, and John Henderson.

. ??Il y a 567 ans, le 15 avril 1452, naissait Léonard de Vinci. À cette occasion, nous vous souhaitons une #BonneSemaine avec La Vierge aux rochers, œuvre emblématique du maître. _ ✍️Tableau au contenu symbolique complexe, La Vierge aux rochers célèbre le mystère de l’Incarnation à travers les figures de Marie, du Christ et de saint Jean. Les figures divines, baignées d’une douce lumière, prennent place pour la première fois dans un paysage animé par les saillies des rochers. Cette iconographie résolument nouvelle connut un succès immense, attesté par le grand nombre de copies contemporaines du tableau. _ ?Première réalisation connue de Léonard à Milan, La Vierge aux rochers se rattache stylistiquement aux œuvres de la fin de son premier séjour florentin, L’Adoration des Mages (Florence) et le Saint Jérôme (Rome), dont elle développe les conceptions esthétiques ________ ?567 years ago, on April 15, 1452, Leonardo da Vinci was born. On this occasion, we wish you a #GoodWeek with La Vierge aux rochers ! _ ✍️Leonardo’s emblematic and complexly symbolic La Vierge aux rochers celebrates the mystery of Incarnation in portrayals of the Virgin Mary, Christ and Saint John the Baptist. For the first time, these holy figures, bathed in a gentle light, are set in rocky landscape. The many contemporary copies of the picture attest to the immense popularity of this new vision of the theme. _ ?La Vierge aux rochers is the first picture Leonardo is known to have produced in Milan and has stylistic similarities with works painted towards the end of his stay in Florence such as The Adoration of the Magi (Florence) and Saint Jerome (Rome), whose aesthetic concepts it develops _ ?©️RMN-Grand Palais (Musée du Louvre) / Franck Raux . . . #Louvre #MuseeDuLouvre #LouvreMuseum #leonardodavinci #leonarddevinci
