Da Vinci and the anatomy of the heart

Curator Martin Clayton shows David Malone a selection of drawings made by Leonardo Da Vinci of the anatomy of the heart. Da Vinci came very close to discovering the circulation of the blood, a century before William Harvey, and some of his observations are being confirmed only now by computer modelling and advanced scanning techniques.

These drawings are part of the Royal Collection and will be on display in the exhibition “Leonardo da Vinci: Anatomist” at The Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace from 4th May to 7 October 2012.

Filming at Windsor Castle and works from the Royal Collection by gracious permission of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
