The da Vinci Legacy
For the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death, an acclaimed art historian and an art connoisseur uncover how this elusive artist became a pop icon with megastar status in modern times.
Virtually everyone would agree that Leonardo da Vinci was the most important artist of the High Renaissance. Although he produced few finished works, it was Leonardo who singlehandedly created the defining features of Western art: a realism based on subtle shading; depth using atmospheric effects; and dramatic contrasts between light and dark.
A father’s account of the story that captivated America, the murder of his beautiful daughter, Alison Parker, on live television, and his heroic fight for commonsense gun laws in the aftermath.
On August 26, 2015, Emmy Award-winning twenty-four-year-old reporter Alison Parker was murdered on live television, along with her twenty-seven-year-old colleague, photojournalist Adam Ward. Their interviewee, Vicki Gardner, was also shot, but survived. This was yet another of the national, headline-grabbing gun murders shocking America: the difference this time was that it unfolded on live television, on WDBJ7, a CBS affiliate station, and the video would be shared on other stations and spread over the internet like wildfire. It’s had hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube alone.
