This is a study for the head of Leda, showing the head of a woman turned three quarters to the left, looking demurely downwards. Leonardo devoted all his attention to drawing the most complicated of hairstyles, with dense whorls and woven plaits, rather than focusing on her facial expression. He worked on two versions of a composition of Leda and the swan, one in which she is kneeling and the other one standing, before eventually executing a painting of the standing version that was destroyed around 1700. In Greek mythology, Leda, the queen of Sparta, was seduced by Jupiter in the form of a swan.

Jane recalled that Elizabeth assured her "that the earth might open and swallow her up alive" if she were not a true Catholic. • • Edwin Sandys, (who was currently in exile but soon to return to England) wrote a different account of the meeting in which Jane Dormer also had another request from Mary, that Elizabeth "keep the composition of Mary's council unchanged". Sandys account states that Elizabeth replied spiritedly, insisting "that she was as free to choose her

On this day in 2018, Art experts in England authenticate two bronzes of men riding panthers as Michelangelo's only surviving bronze works. A university art professor had spotted a similar looking sketch in the corner of a page of one of Michelangelo's notebooks and from there the trail gathered pace.

Tantalizing echoes of what must have been a spectacular garniture, perhaps produced in the workshop of an Augsburg armorer, appear in pigment and precious metal wash on parchment. This manuscript, one of a few invaluable volumes in the collections @metarmsandarmor is a sale catalogue that documents the contents of a still-unknown aristocratic arsenal, which were sold by lottery at the end of the 16th or beginning of the 17th century. This source offers a revealing glimpse into the contents of such an armory, which range from stunning luxury armors and tournament equipment to Turkish trophies and less-exalted objects, like a bag of caltrops.

@klarawilde.writer

These Roman ruins had for many centuries been an important landmark in Bordeaux, including in the mid 16th century, when the characters of my historical novel "Masks and Powder" inhabit it. At that time, they would have looked just like in the first two photos, which are later date drawings (second is from 1574) after a wooden engraving published in Bordeaux in 1565, the very period I am writing about. Such historical documents are like rare gems to me and their discovery fills my heart with pure joy. They are like the potter's raw clay to me, something real which I can hold between my fingers and use to recreate the by-gone worlds of my historical novels. The third picture is a 17th century drawing, the artist's interpretation of how the ruins might have looked like in their heyday (more to follow). #piliersdelatutele #oldbordeaux #ancienbordeaux #bordeaux #magnificentgames #burdigala #16thcentury #tutele #romantemple #temple #tutela #aquitaine #renaissance #17thcentury

On this day in 1577 Sir Francis Drake set sail on his voyage to circumnavigate the world, however bad weather damaged a number of his ships and forced him to take refuge in the harbour of Falmouth in Cornwall.

When the weather settled Drake's fleet returned to Plymouth for repair work.
