Exclamation Da Vinci exhibition at Victoria and Albert

I have been to this Da Vinci exhibition in London, at the Victoria and Albert.
It's beautiful, there's anatomical drawings and one little sketch really impressed me. It shows a fusion between man and machine... Incredibly futuristic.
It's a collection of codes, just everyday sketches he did over the course of the years.
I totally recommend it!

That's really cool! The animated illustrations on the website are definitely a great thing - thanks for the link!

I'm aiming to go some time in the next couple of weeks and I'm really looking forward to it. The exhibition was discussed on the Newsnight review a few weeks ago and they all gave it a thumbs up and even mentioned that everyone if possible should splash out on the "beautiful" 30 catalogue available from the shop afterwards.

Incidentally, I was on the Isle of Wight last week, and I got to visit Osbourne House where Victoria and Albert used to live (and where (Queen) Victoria died). The amount of paintings and sculptures there was incredible - adorned on every wall and in every corner, across every staircase, column, bedside. Well worth the visit.

Cool

For anyone going there with an interest in photography and lighting,
I can also recommend the "Twilight" exhibition:

I went there yesterday and there are some stunning photographs on display.

Cheers

Amazing Da Vinci metalpoint drawings.

That vascular sytem arm study of Da Vinci on the web page is indicative of the level of work he did.

He often used silverpoint for cool tones and ironpoint for warmer tones in his drawings. So in this drawing of the vascular blood vessel system of the human arm (on the Victoria & Albert web page http://www.vam.ac.uk/vastatic/microsites/1384_leonardo/ ), he apparently used both metals in his drawing technique for this study.

Very exotic. Even more so when the metals oxidize over time to give us a look he may have or may not have intended.

I wish I could make it over there.

I didn't know all this, it's very interesting. Well, if you want the catalogue I'll go and buy a copy (seriously) and send it over to you, I go to that museum all the time so it wouldn't be too much hassle. It would be better than nothing I suppose!
