Gran Cavallo

World Art Day exhibition

Artists in many countries will celebrate the fourth World Art Day on 15 April.  This day marks the commemoration of the famous Leonardo da Vinci’s birthday and is an initiative of the International Association of Art (IAA) to propagate and promote the visual arts.

For this year’s festivities the Association Pretoria decided on Leonardo’s iconic horse sculpture (the Gran Cavallo) as theme, although it was never executed by the master himself and accomplished only five centuries later from the original designs.  Several prominent artists were invited to give their impressions of this famous sculpture by Leonardo.  The exhibition promises to be an exciting event well suited to celebrate World Art Day.

The exhibition will be opened by the romantic balladeer baritone, Jean-Pierre Verster, on Wednesday 15 April 2015 at 18h30 for 19h00.  He will be accompanied by Marelize Koch on the piano.  The preview takes place on Saturday 11 April 2015 from 10h00 to 13h00 and the exhibition runs until Wednesday 6 May 2015.
