Da Vinci's Sculptures Decoded

SAT, OCT 3, 2009 (1:55)

High Museum of Art Exhibition Curator Gary M. Radke discusses how art historians try to reconstruct Leonardo da Vinci's sculptural production. Da Vinci evidently made plans for and produced sculpture throughout his career, but little of it survives. Radke also presents arguments for attributing two previously unrecognized figures to da Vinci.
