Drawing the City
Tess Radcliffe, Learning and Access Officer
Every wondered how mapmakers and artists captured all the physical intricacies of the city in their work?
In this special lecture, Tess Radcliffe looks at the ways in which artists – from the Renaissance through to the modern day – rationalize the city through map making. The lecture will also explore the fascinating associations that maps had with anatomical drawings and the human body, focusing on Old Masters such as Leonardo Da Vinci, who was both a painter and cartographer.
