Leonardo to Present: The Story of the Heart

Robin Choudhury

Tuesday, 2 April 2019

2:00pm

1 hour

Weston Lecture Theatre

£7 - £12.50

Event Presented by

Cardiologist Professor Robin Choudhury examines depictions of the heart from Leonardo da Vinci to the present day, exploring how the thinking of the day was reflected in images of the heart.

Choudury questions how and why the heart has retained its pre-eminence as the site of love, passion and emotion even as some of its more literal functions have been revealed.

Choudhury is a professor of cardiovascular medicine at Oxford University, a fellow of Balliol College and a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians. He is a practising interventional cardiologist with expertise in the emergency treatment of heart attack and is director of the Oxford Acute Vascular Imaging Centre – a unique facility for clinical research in patients suffering heart attack and stroke.

The Thinking 3D: Leonardo to Present exhibition at the Bodleian Libraries tells the story of the development of three-dimensional communication over the last 500 years and runs between 21 March 2019 and 9 February 2020.

Presented by the Bodleian Libraries.
