Da Vinci in Edo Tokyo Museum - 江戸東京博物館のダ・ヴィンチ


The exhibition of da Vinci in Edo Tokyo Museum was virtually a show of "da Vinci followers" where the famous Madonna dell'aspo had its appearance as if the celebrity invitee. The same kind of impression I had was Vermeer+Rembrandt last autumn in Kyoto. The collection of surroundings would be worthwhile in terms of deeper knowledge, but it is at the same time a slight discouragement for those expecting to see master works. Among few others by Leonard himself in display, I thought the drawing of flowers was fascinating.
