Leonardo 500 Anniversary celebration: Vitruvian Man print on pure silk tie
As for Leonardo’s Vitruvian Man, created around 1487, this is one of the world’s icons, and a fitting part of the National Gallery Collection.
Intended to explore the idea of proportion, the famous drawing is part work of art and part mathematical diagram, conveying the Old Master’s belief that ‘everything connects to everything else’.
It is a prime example of the scientific sketches which have come to define Leonardo—and a very fine yet subtle statement for a thinking man to wear on his tie.
