From Leonardo to Bauhaus: The Rise and Fall of the Artist-Scientist

by Richard Whincop

Leonardo da Vinci - design for flying machine

This lecture plots the coming together of Art and Science in the person of Leonardo da Vinci, and his scientific approach to painting in the analysis of light, perspective, anatomy and human expression; and it goes on to look at the scientific approach to painting of artists such as Vermeer, Joseph Wright of Derby, and Seurat, culminating in the rational aesthetic of the Bauhaus. It will end by outlining the reasons for the eventual divorce between art and science, and ask if this split is irrevocable.
