Our next lecture on Tuesday 10th January 2017 is:
The Anatomical Drawings of Leonardo da Vinci- A Surgeon’s View
Lecturer: Guy Rooker
This talk explores the way in which Leonardo acquired his knowledge of anatomy from experience via extrapolation to human dissection and ties in with the chronology of his travels and well-known artistic achievements. Leonardo’s anatomical drawings were lost for 250 years, finally coming to light in London as illustrations for anatomical teaching. The lecture is illustrated with examples of these drawings and reflects the extraordinary accuracy of his findings.
Guy Rooker describes himself as a retired surgeon with a lifelong passion, fascination, and admiration for the work of Leonardo da Vinci.
