There are some great new exhibitions on this week. A new exhibition of Leonardo da Vinci’s study of anatomy opens at The Queen’s Galllery this Friday. This groundbreaking work was lost for 400 years after his death in 1519, but can now be enjoyed in the largest exhibition of his studies of the human body.
A new exhibition of Bauhaus, ‘Bauhaus – Art as Life‘ opens at the Barbican on Thursday. From expressionist beginnings to a pioneering model uniting art and technology, this London exhibition presents the Bauhaus’ utopian vision to change society in the aftermath of the First World War.
