Codex on the flight of birds
Exhibition of Lars Lerin paintings and Manoel Marques photos at Henriksberg Gallery
The exhibition features paintings by Lars Lerin and photos by Manoel Marques representing birds.
These paintings by Lars Lerin will be shown for the first time in Finland and are part of the artist's permanent exhibition at the Sandgrund Lars Lerin Museum in Karlstad, Sweden.
Many of these paintings were inspired by the birds on display at the collection of the Museum of Natural History in Stockholm.
Manoel's photos were taken in the same museum and show the birds that inspired Lars.
The theme of the exhibition is a reference to Leonardo da Vinci’s text "Codex on the flight of birds". On display at the Henriksberg Gallery as well 13 excerpts from Leonardo's manuscript are illustrated with paintings by Lars and Manoel’s photos.
The Codex exhibition is also a tribute to Leonardo da Vinci. In 2019 we are celebrating the 500th anniversary of Leonardo's death (April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519).
