Many historical exhibitions tend to be collections of whatever the museum in question can get their hands on, loosely united around a period, a theme, or the name of a famous artist. The exhibition that has just finished at the Bunkamura “Money and Beauty: Botticelli and the Renaissance in Florence” was rather like that. If done well, this approach can still provide an entertaining and interesting show, but much more satisfying is a concept like that behind the show at the Tokyo Fuji Art Museum.

Titled “Leonardo da Vinci and The Battle of Anghiari: The Mystery of Tavola Doria,” it is both an exhibition of Renaissance art and something of a detective mystery that brings together the two biggest artistic names of that period — Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.
