The Rivalry Between Leonardo and Michelangelo

Discover the rivalry and antipathy that took place between Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo Buonarroti

Through examples of their work, Dr James Lindow will explore the motivations for their animosity and reveal the ultimate respect for each other’s distinct artistic talents.
Dr James Lindow was the first Renaissance PhD from the Royal College of Art and the Victoria & Albert Museum. He has presented at international conferences and lectures, published articles on diverse aspects of the Renaissance, and has written a book entitled The Renaissance Palace in Florence: Magnificence and Splendour in Fifteenth-Century Italy -published by Ashgate Publishing in 2007 to widespread critical acclaim. He is currently a fine art underwriter in the City of London.

Tour of Da Vinci Invention: Leonardo and his Machines will be available after the lecture. Dr James Lindow will also be signing copies of his book after the lecture.

The Rivalry Between Leonardo and Michelangelo is brought to you by the friends of The Lightbox and is sponsored by AXA Art.
