Surgical drawing

Don't miss the start of a major new arts series, Secret of Drawing, on BBC2 on Saturday, 20.10 to 21.10. The first episode includes a discussion with surgeon Frances Wells as he explores the link between drawing and surgery. Frances not only draws his own operations but is also an expert on Leonardo da Vinci’s anatomical drawings. Indeed, he has even used da Vinci’s drawing of the heart as the basis of a pioneering new form of surgery.
