How is a drawing like a chord?

Leonardo is famous today as a visual artist, but in his own day he was equally celebrated as a musician.His writings are full of comparisons between the two arts, using musical concepts like harmony to think through the nature of drawing and painting.

Dr Tim Shephard will reveal what music meant to Leonardo and how it influenced his visual practice.
