Leonard: The Works

Feb 6 2020 - 7:00pm Ginevra de' Benci, 1474Ginevra de' Benci, 1474

General Admission $15, $10 Students, $116 Live in HD Flex Subscription

Marking the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci's death: for the first time ever, ALL of his paintings will be shown in ultra-HD on the big screen!

Leonardo da Vinci is widely acclaimed as the world's favorite artist.  Many TV shows and feature films have showcased this extraordinary genius; but often not examined closely enough is the most crucial element of all - his art. 

His peerless paintings and drawings are the focus of Leonardo: The Works, as this cinematic production presents every single attributed painting, in ultra-HD quality, as never seen before on the big screen.

Key works include: The Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, Lady with an Ermine, Ginevra de' Benci, Madonna Litta, Virgin of the Rocks, and more than a dozen others.  The film also looks afresh at da Vinci's life - his inventiveness, his sculptural skills, his military foresight and his ability to navigate the treacherous politics of the day - through the prism of his art.

This is the definitive production about Leonardo, and the first to truly tell the whole story.

The production runs approximately one hour, 25 minutes. 

Lucian Freud: A Self Portrait

Mar 12 2020 - 7:00pm

General Admission $15, $10 Students, $116 Live in HD Flex Subscription

For the first time in history, The Royal Academy of Arts in London, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, is bringing together Lucian Freud's self-portraits.  The resulting exhibition will display more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings in which this modern master of British art turned his unflinching eye firmly on himself.

One of the most celebrated painters of our time, Freud is also one of the very few 20th-century artists who portrayed themselves with such consistency.  Spanning nearly seven decades, his self-portraits give a fascinating insight into both his psyche and his development as a painter, from his earliest portrait painted in 1939 to the final one executed 64 years later.  When seen together, his portraits represent an engrossing study into the dynamic of aging and the process of self-representation.

This intensely compelling exhibition creates a unique opportunity to reveal the life's work of a master in one show.

The production runs approximately one hour, 20 minutes.
