Leonardo da Vinci was one of the bright lights of the Renaissance: an architect, engineer, inventor, mathematician and, of course, one of history's great artists.
His scientific appreciation of form and proportion blended with spectacular artistic talent. You can get a glimpse of that from April 15 to June 14 in a new exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, titled "Leonardo da Vinci and the Idea of Beauty."
Helen Burnham, Pamela and Peter Voss curator of prints and drawings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
