Kennedy at the Leonardo Da Vinci Exhibition in Milan
There are few cultures that have graced western civilization with such fine art and beauty, as Italy.
The names of Michelangelo, Rafael, Dante, Galileo, Puccini, Stratovari, Machiavelli, Thomas Aquinas, Marco Polo and hundreds of others have influenced mankind in positive ways immeasurable. They have had a tremendous influence on my work and approach in conceptual thinking. The “Renaissance” was created here and flourished all through Europe. Mankind owes its gratitude to the Italian culture for reminding all of us that “Classic,” is always in style.
Yet, there is one figure that towers far over the rest. One man than exemplifies the highest of human thought, expression and accomplishment. A master painter, sculpture, inventor, musician, alchemist, poet, architect, scientist, writer and philosopher
There will never be another…
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”
Leonardo Da Vinci
