The Genius of Leonardo

Monday 10 June 2019

Figure studies, maps, engineering and weapon designs, architectural plans, anatomical drawings – all these aspects feature in the Exhibition of Leonardo drawings at The Queen’s Gallery.

Unsurprisingly, the offer of a private Salopian tour and talk by Desmond Shawe-Taylor (I 1968-73), Surveyor of The Queen’s Pictures, on Thursday 6th June was fully subscribed. Those attending were left to wonder at the genius of Leonardo reflected in his drawings, taken from an album acquired by Charles II.

Our thanks again to Desmond Shawe-Taylor for yet another tour de force.
