Pillow Case “Horse” – Leonardo da Vinci (1499)
Da Vinci spent a lot of time studying the shape and in particular the movement of horses. Horses and their biomechanics always fascinated da Vinci. This horse sculpture was requested by Ludovico Sforza, as a tribute to his predecessor Francesco Sforza. Indeed The horse was the symbol of the aristocratic House of Sforza. This order from a patron enabled da Vinci to express his talent on an animal he appreciated. This animal is one of nature’s wonders. And in da Vinci’s opinion, nature was the mistress of all masters.
Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was an Italian polymath, painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. He was a leading artist and intellectual of the Italian Renaissance who’s known for his enduring works The Last Supper” and Mona Lisa.”
