The seminar will consist of four lectures of two hours each, with a fifteen minute intermission. Each lecture will focus on a single artist and will be presented in the order of their deaths as set forth above. The lectures will include key biographical information that marks important events and people in their lives. With the use of still images and videos, we will view as many of their respective works of art as time permits. We will also look at the other interests of the two polymaths, Leonardo and Michelangelo.
