Commemorates the Legendary Carlo Pedretti, A Da Vinci Expert, Who Died Earlier this Month

Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/15/2018 -- ARTInvestment.RU with utmost sadness and great respect observes the death of the Legendary Carlo Pedretti. Carlo Pedretti, who died earlier this month on 5th January 2018 at his Villa in Poggibonsi, is known for being an ardent follower of Leonardo Da Vinci. Pedretti is considered to be the greatest expert on the works of the renowned artist; and had written more than 700 articles and essays and 60 books on Da Vinci in various languages.

Pedretti was a professor emeritus of Italian Art History at the University of California, LA. During which he also held the chair of studies on Leonardo. In 2013 he moved permanently to Italy and as part of his last assignments, he was a member of the committee which was formed to celebrate the 500th death anniversary of Da Vinci scheduled in 2019. The Art Industry will dearly miss the legendary icon to which many Da Vinci followers look up to.

One of Pedretti's pioneering works was his 1957 catalog of Leonardo's drawings at the Royal Library at Windsor gathered from the Atlantic Codex of the Ambrosian Library, Milan. His other works include – monumental edition of Leonardo's drawings in Windsor (1968-1969), followed by the edition of Leonardo's drawings and his circle in Florence (1985), Turin (1990) and the American collections (1993).

Professor Pedretti was considered as Leonardo's most famous scholar in the world and recognized as the most qualified. The professor was supposed to support the organization of several exhibitions in Asia and China on Leonardo; with Leonardo's last painting depicting Lucrezia Crivelli being exposed in several museums. The painting was also supposed to be ordered together with "Cenacolo" by Ludovico Il Moro, yet another true masterpiece the art world will have ever seen; with famous museums from across the world lining up to grab the exceptional opportunity to display these masterpieces.

The exhibitions will witness several drawings of Leonardo from the Windsor collection and are curated together with Salvo Spagna, President, Servizi Italia Asia Pacific and the first Italian excellence advisor.
