2371

Check it out if you’re in London next year! From TheGuardian.

An exhibition celebrating the genius of Leonardo da Vinci as a scientist, inventor and engineer is to open at the Science Museum in London in February.

The painter, who created the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper, also once said he believed it was his destiny to build a machine to allow a man to fly, and had one of the most insatiably curious minds of the Renaissance. The event will include models recreated from his working drawings of flying, diving and war machines.

The 39 detailed models of his inventions are themselves museum pieces, created in Milan in 1952 to celebrate the 500th anniversary of his birth. The exhibition will also include some objects from the Science Museum’s own collection, preserved from the Royal Academy anniversary exhibition the same year.
