I wasn’t tempted by their previous exhibitions, but this one is different, Leonardo da Vinci: Experience, Experiment and Design at the V&A museum, reviewed in today’s Observer. They don’t have the recently revealed under-drawings from the Adoration of the Magi, or other discoveries by the Kapla funded project, but there are some wonderful elements in the exhibition, and some great online coverage at the V&A website – a timeline of Leonardo’s life, the exhibition themes and info on the codices. There was also a recent article on the source material for the exhibition, and how it got here.. with more images

Donate to keep Slugger lit!
For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.
Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.
While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.
If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
