"The Battle of Anghiari," - 24" x 36" Graphite on Paper. The purpose of this drawing was to pay homage to my favorite artist Leonardo da Vinci.
The original drawing by Leonardo was intended to be a wall mural depicting The Battle of Anghiari fought on June 29, 1440,
between Milan and the Italian League led by Republic of Florence in the course of the Wars in Lombardy.
Leonardo da Vinci hated the bloody horror of war and wanted to portray the fury, the intense emotions and the sense of power.

The study of Leonardo da Vinci had a profound impact on my life, my career, and my creative thinking.
He embodied the perfect synergy of fine art, science, and technology.
