LEONARDO DA VINCI "HORSE & RIDER"

 

 

"Horse & Rider"  500 years old Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece preserved after being saved from the Nazis. In 1508 from a block of beeswax, Leonardo da Vinci creates a model of a horse and rider in full military regalia.

The work is thought to be the model for a much larger monument to Leonardo’s friend and patron Charles d’Amboise, French governor of Milan. The only sculpture of Leonardo is exhibited in Milan in an extraordinary event.
