Exhibition of Leonardo's anatomical drawings to be presented at Clare Hall

This January, Clare Hall Art Committee will present The Art and Heart of Leonardo, an exhibition chiefly of Leonardo da Vinci's anatomical drawings, as seen through contemporary eyes.

The exhibition is the outcome of Francis Wells’ long-standing interest in Leonardo, which first took hold when, as a young man, he studied anatomy for surgery. 

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was an Italian painter, draftsman, sculptor, architect, and engineer. As an artist fascinated by both art and science, Leonardo was able to see things that many could not. He was a profound lateral thinker and applied his ideas in functional anatomy across species. 

Running from 13 January - 10 February 2022, the exhibition is free and open to the public.
