Leonardo and the Virgin of the Rocks

Posted: 15/03/18

On Thursday 8 March, we were led on a gripping journey through the life and career of Leonardo da Vinci by Godolphin and Latymer’s own History of Art teacher, Katy Blatt.

This truly inspirational talk had even the least knowledgeable art historians amongst us hanging on every word, as Katy talked of the influences and symbolism behind his most famous painting, The Virgin of the Rocks. Katy argued that this one commission holds the key to the most dramatic scientific, philosophical, and psychological transformations of Leonardo’s life.

Over 50 guests attended this intimate talk with questions aplenty at the end and everyone leaving with a keen interest to learn more about this celebrated painter.
