Five hundred years after his death, the original ‘Renaissance man’ Leonardo de Vinci will be omnipresent. Stephen Farthing, a painter, and Michael Farthing, a physician, consider Leonardo’s unrivalled legacy in Under the Skin – an examination of the artistic and scientific significance of Leonardo’s anatomical drawings.
Ben Lewis’ The Last Leonardo is a biography of a single painting, Salvator Mundi, and the thrilling quest for its rediscovery.
What do they tell us about the genius who explored the world with distinction through visual art, the written word and science?
Chaired by Dinah Casson.
