Add Leonardo da Vinci to List of Famous Lefties

将列奥纳多·达·芬奇列入左撇子名人名单

In May, the world will mark 500 years since the death of Leonardo da Vinci.

今年5月,世界将纪念列奥纳多·达·芬奇逝世500周年。

Art galleries and museums are preparing shows to honor the life and works of the artist they call Leonardo, who died in France on May 2, 1519. He is remembered as one of the greatest artists and creative thinkers of all time. Among his most famous paintings are The Mona Lisa and The Last Supper.

美术馆和博物馆正在筹备展览,以纪念画家达芬奇的生平和作品,达芬奇于1519年5月2日在法国去世。他被认为是有史以来最伟大的艺术家和最具创新性思维的思想家之一。他最著名的画作有《蒙娜丽莎》和《最后的晚餐》。

Recently, researchers were studying what they think is da Vinci's earliest-known artwork. They used special lighting to study the work and discovered there were two images, not one. One drawing was on the back of the piece, which is dated August 5, 1473.

最近,研究人员正在研究他们所认为的达芬奇最早期的艺术品。他们用特殊的灯光研究了这幅作品,发现这副画中有两幅图像而不是仅有一幅。这件作品的背面有一幅画,创作日期是1473年8月5日。

The drawing on the front, made when Leonardo was 21 years old, shows a river valley and a castle outside the city of Florence. There is little left of the drawing on the back, perhaps because it was rubbed off. Only a bridge over a river can be seen. But there is writing on both sides.

画的正面是列奥纳多21岁时画的,画中是佛罗伦萨城外的一个河谷和一座城堡。这幅画的背面几乎什么也没留下,可能是因为画被擦掉了,只能看到一座横跨在河上的桥。但正反面上都写有字。

The writing on the front gives the date and goes from right to left. Some people would call this "mirror-writing." Leonardo often wrote this way in his notebooks. On the back, the handwriting goes from left to right, and tells about an agreement, probably to produce a work of art.

正面从左到右写着日期。有些人会称之为“镜像书写(倒写)”。列奥纳多经常在他的笔记本上这样写。在画的背面,从左到右而写着一份协议,协议内容可能是要画一幅画作。

Cecilia Frosinini is an art historian. She said, "Leonardo was born left-handed, but was taught to write with his right hand from a very young age. By looking at his writings, including from this drawing, one can see his right-handed calligraphy is educated and well done."

塞西莉亚·佛洛西尼尼是一位美术史学家。她说:“列奥纳多天生是左撇子,但很小的适合就学会了用右手写字。从他的作品,包括这幅画,可以看出他的右手书法是受过训练的,写得很好。”

Experts compared the two handwriting samples and said they were both made by Leonardo. They show he could write well using both his left hand and his right hand.

专家们比较了这两种笔迹样本,称它们都是达芬奇所作。这两种笔迹证明他无论左右手,都写得很好。

The drawing is known as "Landscape 8P" from its number in an art catalog. It will be part of an exhibit at Italy's Uffizi Gallery. The gallery director, Eike Schmidt, said the drawing gives art experts a new way of looking at Leonardo's drawing technique and his abilities in writing.

这幅画因其在画作目录中的编号而被称为“风景画 8P”,这幅画将是意大利乌菲齐美术馆展览展品的一部分。美术馆馆长艾克·施密特表示,这幅画让艺术家以一种新的方式来审视达芬奇的绘画技巧和写作能力。

It is a real revolution in the field of Leonardo studies, he said.

他表示:“这是达芬奇研究领域的一场真正的革命。”
