ATLANTA, GA.- The High recently launched new web content for the ‘Leonardo da Vinci: Hand of the Genius” exhibition. The special web section features an introductory video, highlights from the exhibition, as well as time-lapse video of the installation the Sforza Horse Monument outside the Museum. Visitors can access the website at http://www.high.org/leonardo. “Leonardo da Vinci: Hand of the Genius” exhibition opens on Tuesday, October 6.

After a month-long journey by container ship from Italy , and by truck from Savannah to Atlanta , the modern re-creation of Leonardo’s Sforza horse arrived at the High on September 21. For five days, an international crew of more than ten Italians and Atlantans gathered on the High’s Sifly Piazza to assemble the replica, which is made up of six pieces of special resin treated to look like bronze. The 26-foot-high model, together with its base, weighs about 40,000 pounds, or twenty tons, and illustrates what the horse component of the Sforza monument might have looked like if Leonardo had been able to complete it.

“Leonardo da Vinci: Hand of the Genius” will feature approximately 50 works, including more than 20 sketches and studies by Leonardo, some of which will be on view in the United States for the first time. The exhibition will also feature work by Donatello, Rubens, Verrocchio, and Rustici. Also included are works from world-renowned collections, including those of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Vatican Museums, the Musée du Louvre, the British Museum, and the Museo Nazionale del Bargello in Florence. The exhibition is organized by the High Museum of Art in association with the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, and in collaboration with the Opera di Santa Maria del Fiore and the Opificio delle Pietre Dure in Florence, Italy.
