Leonardo da Vinci: A Second Nature in the World

Can da Vinci's Mona Lisa and his flying machine really be alike? Join Martin Kemp as he discusses this.

Referencing the exhibition 'Ten Drawings by Leonardo da Vinci: A Diamond Jubilee Celebration from the Royal Collecyion', Martin Kemp, one of the World's leading authorities on Leonardo, will explore the way in which his art and science can both be understood as a remaking of nature on the basis of deep understanding of cause and effect. In light of this, he will demonstrate how connections can be drawn between seemingly unrelated works such as the Mona Lisa and the flying machine.
