Course Description

Ms. Cocciardi takes us on a journey into a little known aspect of Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic works of art. While exploring preliminary sketches of his works, she realized that most, if not all, of his paintings include an intertwining knot. Da Vinci seems to use the device in a variety of designs, and no copyist to date has been able to replicate them. Let OLLI and Ms. Cocciardi give you a close look at this fascinating aspect of the master’s major works, including Mona Lisa, Annunciation, the Last Supper, and Lady with the Ermine. Here’s another chance to probe the mysteries behind a genius at work.

This lecture will take place at Lake Park, 1850 Alice Street, Oakland, CA 94612.
