In this captivating exhibition, Mark Rosheim shares his collection of rare 19th Century editions of Leonardo da Vinci sketchbooks and his own contemporary work in replicating the master's designs. On display will be examples from the Codex Atlanticus, the Windsor Library Notebooks, the Codex Trivulzianus, and the Codex on the Flight of Birds. In addition, a selection of Rosheim's personal journals will also be on view.
Among other scholarly works, Rosheim is the author of Robot Evolution: The Development of Anthrobotics and Leonardo's Lost Robots, a reinterpretation of Leonardo da Vinci's mechanical design work that reveals a new level of sophistication not recognized by art historians or engineers.
