Leonardo da Vinci anatomy drawings on show at Buckingham Palace


The largest ever exhibition of Leonardo da Vinci's drawings of the human body go on display in the Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace later this week.

Da Vinci has long been recognised as a great artist but he was also a pioneer in the study of anatomy, dissecting the corpses of executed criminals or the destitute.

Martin Clayton, senior curator of the Royal Collection, showed Fergus Walsh some of the highlights from the exhibition.
