There’s a huge Leonardo da Vinci exhibition coming to London

British Library

From June to September this year at the British Library, one of the biggest collections of things to come from the hands of Leonardo da Vinci is going ton display. And you can see it all.

Leo died over 500 years ago this year, so to commemorate the man, there’s a bit going on around London to shed some light on the great man and mind.

The exhibition, Leonardo da Vinci: A Mind in Motion will reveal how Leonardo believed motion to be the ‘cause of all life’. 

Known first and foremost as an artist, Leonardo’s notebooks reveal his close observations, detailed recording and systematic analysis of movement in nature, with a particular emphasis on water in motion and the exhibition will explore how this relates to his work as an artist and inventor.

It’ll be one hell of a coming together of work by the man, renowned for so much, hailed by so many and honoured by even more for so much of what we understand and appreciate today.

See the exhibition from 7 June to 8 September at the British Library, 96 Euston Rd, London NW1 2DB.
