#CuratorsOnCamera – Leonardo da Vinci’s handwriting his work as a ‘Master of Water ’

Published on Jun 25, 2019
Take a closer look at the Codex Arundel (Arundel MS 263, ff. 271v-278r). Two of our exhibition curators, Andrea and Stephen, explore Leonardo’s studies of the River Arno and how he would have taken his sheets of people out with him while conducting his work in Florence. And Stephen takes a closer look at Leonardo’s handwriting choices within the pages of his notebook.
