Lecture recording: A Relationship Etched in Time: Leonardo da Vinci, the Earl of Arundel and Wenceslaus Hollar


Lecture by Dr. Rolando Del Maestro of the Montreal Neurological Institute on the dynamic interplay between Thomas Howard, the 21st Earl of Arundel and the engraver Wenceslaus Hollar, which resulted in the etching of over 60 plates after the works of Leonardo da Vinci. Although many of the original drawings can still be found in various collections, others are lost and so the Hollar etchings are the only remaining evidence of Leonardo’s work.  The lecture accompanied an exhibition curated by Dr. Del Maestro at the Osler Library between November 2010 and January 2011.
