Leonardo was born in 1452, the illegitimate child of a girl from the village of Vinci and a Florentine lawyer. Vinci is now a small town and Leonardo has become a worldwide symbol of the Renaissance, in art, in engineering and in the study of the natural world. He has left a huge mass of drawings, some beguilingly beautiful and there are the makings here for many romantic myths. This talk will attempt to understand Leonardo by looking at his life and work in their historical context.
Dr Field is President of the Leonardo da Vinci Society and the author of several books and many articles about the Renaissance. Haslemere Museum, £5
