If you’ve never seen the Mona Lisa up close, here’s the perfect chance to do so, and it’s right in your own backyard! Head over to the National Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur, for the ongoing traveling exhibition Leonardo Opera Omnia, to see digital reproductions of some of the most iconic artworks by Leonardo da Vinci. And the best part is, admission is free!
While the paintings are true-to-size digital reproductions of those hanging at the Louvre and other top notch museums, fans have commended them for resembling the actual paintings! Since the exhibition opened on 15 July, thousands have visited the gallery for a glimpse of the famous Mona Lisa. But she is not the only star of the show.
You’ll also be able to see other da Vinci’s famous works such as Lady With An Ermine, The Last Supper, Annunciation, La Belle Ferronniere and Head Of A Woman on this tour.
Held in Kuala Lumpur until August 15, the Leonardo Opera Omnia traveling exhibition was in Georgia, Warsaw, Poland and China, and will head over to Bangkok and Yangon. An exhibition that was initiated by the Italian public television subsidiary RaiCom with the support of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, and presented here in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy and the National Art Gallery, this exhibition has the impeccable timing of showcasing da Vinci’s works in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of his death.
Malaysians are lucky indeed to get a taste of the celebration by prominent museums around the world on da Vinci the artist, engineer, inventor and visionary extraordinaire throughout this year.
The exhibition is ending soon, so wait no more! Make your way to the National Art Gallery now!
