Secrets of Leonardo da Vinci’s Virgin of the Rocks Revealed, Springfield, MAVirgin of the Rocks - Louvre

Dec. 3 (Thursday), Noon-1 pm Lecture slides

The Springfield Art Museum, 21 Edwards St. Springfield, MA. 413-263-6800 

Enjoy an artistic investigation together in time for Christmas! Andrew Linnell, an experienced lecturer and researcher of the Ancient Mysteries, will lead us through an entertaining discussion of the mysteries revealed in the original Virgin of the Rocks. Why were there two paintings? What was da Vinci attempting to depict? Who are the characters? Are they the two Messiahs anticipated in Essene-lore? Did any other artist paint similar scenes? If so, what might this mean to our Christian theology? Many fun questions to explore with a heavy dose of beautiful Renaissance art. Note: this is not a religious lecture, rather an unusual and entertaining art history talk meant for public and academic enrichment. New findings will be shared. Dan Brown fans will enjoy this!
