a research fellow at the history of art department at docks and invested joins us via skype from there thanks very much indeed for being with us so the sheer scale of davinci is creativity is astonishing if you had to tell a child you knew nothing about him or someone who just hadn't heard of him something about him where would you start. well i would say he was very good at multitasking and then just larry's dollar and worked a great deal of research for his own projects and was self-taught and lots of a lot to say before that would inspire you and what about him in the sketches incremental of people know about the paintings but some of his sketches are extraordinary yes in fact i brought this note up this is successfully one of his not if this is a perpetual motion. design for example and you can see the tiny handwriting now that you know he worked quite a bit with these no thoughts some six thousand pages survive now that's only a quarter of what he had done and what about the engineering side of things many fewer people remember the art but it get i mean how where would you rank him on
3:36 am
this but in terms of engineering that was but that came to be a want to test primary interests even though i was very well known as a painter and he had he was quite confident in his in his work as a painter and his studio's works better had very good studio systems but as an engineer he focus a great deal of his time because he was training him so all along and could work with military engineering civil engineering architecture textile machines a musical instruments as well siyad trickle devices and stage sets and just a full range of things that he would be asked to do so the sports a court knew would continue that into other projects cartography is also part of his injured during abilities. and what about me which is similar seeing some of the pictures some of the they are not that he's well known for and some of the sketches i was hearing were some of the paintings that i was here making a very fragile time as a bit about the kind of materials he used and why they didn't assert he was lost that well. indeed well he would he would paint for example he liked paint with oil
3:37 am
quite a bit so he worked with instead of fresco he would add fresco seco or dry fresco on dry plaster which it doesn't doesn't survivor well plussed well paint on top of that so the last supper for example and then paintings like the by madonna. he wanted to use and caustic so he was always experimenting with it with techniques and trying new new materials things that others haven't tried yet and he paid the price for it well i read somewhere that he was partly a great procrastinator which might be reassuring for us mere mortals is that true do you think ana well i wonder about that you know he certainly i that's true i think but he was also very busy and he was called to task called to lots of tasks especially when he was in milan his first eighteen years in one quite busy with lots of different things so good question. got to market on this like you very much indeed. and that's it from london and now back to michelle in doha thank you very
