Leonardo: The art and science of attribution (Royal Institution, Tuesday 16th April, 7.30pm to 8.45pm)

This event will see Martin Kemp and Larry Keith discuss the issues involved in establishing the authenticity of works of art on the 500th birthday of Leonardo. Combining expertise from the fields of Art History and Technical Studies, they will explain the essential role of scientific analytical techniques and reveal that there is much more to the process than science alone. The evening will be hosted by best-selling author Philip Ball.
