Leonardo da Vinci
Dr. Pevsner has a longstanding interest in Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). He has lectured at art museums (such as the Getty in Los Angeles and the Metropolitan Museum of of Art in New York), science museums (including IMAX theaters at the Maryland Science Center and the Houston Museum of Natural Science), and various schools and colleges. He appeared on the Discovery Channel show Doing DaVinci and on the History Channel. He has published articles on Leonardo's studies of the brain and soul in Trends in Neurosciences and Scientific American Mind. He teaches a graduate course, "The Mind of Leonardo," for the Master of Liberal Arts (MLA) program at Johns Hopkins University Krieger School of Arts and Sciences.
The next public lecture is for the non-credit Odyssey program at JHU, 4/16/2016.
