Lecture - Leonardo da Vinci: The Mechanics of Man

Leonardo da Vinci: The Mechanics of Man

This is a free public lecture by Prof Peter Abrahams

'Leonardo da Vinci was one of the greatest anatomists ever to have lived. He personally dissected more than thirty human corpses to explore every aspect of anatomy and physiology, and recorded his findings in drawings of unparalleled beauty and lucidity. Had he published his researches, Leonardo would have transformed European knowledge of the human body.  Sadly at his death his studies remained unpublished and among his personal papers, and were almost unknown (unseen) until around 1900.

Professor Peter  Abrahams , Clinical Anatomist from  Warwick Medical school and  long-time  examiner for  RCS Edinburgh  will  show  how many  new  concepts in anatomical  artistic  design were  unique  to  Leonardo’s  work and how  these  concepts and  ideas  have  now developed  into  many  modalities  of modern   medical  images.'

I think this promises to be very interesting .. I love it when Art and Science are combined to enhance our knowledge of the world. And who is more masterful than Leonardo?!  I've just seen the Last Supper fresco in Milan and so I'm very keen to understand him more.

Please book tickets from the Eventbrite website BEFORE confirming your attendance.

As it is a fairly early start I think we should meet a quarter of an hour before the start of the lecture at 5.45pm. I don't know the layout of the venue so we just have to use common sense. If we don't all meet prior it's not the end of the world. Meet afterwards at the cafe


Afterwards we will retire to Spoon cafe/restaurant in order to ruminate !

    Hello. This sounds interesting, especially since I need to know my muscles for my sports massage. Does anyone have a spare ticket? I've just 'applied' with Eventbrite but not sure I'll get a ticket....Thanks Clare

    Looks like its sold out. I was late getting onto this. If there are any spare tickets out there I'd be grateful (2 would be even better as I'd like bring a son).

      They tick your name off at the door rather then use painted tickets just say the name of the person who reserved the tickets.#
