Leonardo da Vinci is universally recognized to be one of the greatest artists of all time. But was he an artist or a scientist? William Wallace will explore both aspects in his talk on this fascinating, yet enigmatic genius.

Enjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and conversation with Dr. William Wallace, Washington University Distinguished Professor of Art and Architecture of 14th-18th Century Italy.

William E. Wallace received his Ph.D. in Art History from Columbia University in New York in 1983 and is currently Professor in the Department of Art History and Archaeology.
