The National Gallery's curator has recently admitted that their latest Leonardo da Vinci exhibition, which opens on Wednesday 9th November in London, was conceived in part to dispel author Dan Brown's mystical claims in his bestseller, The Da Vinci Code

In an attempt to counter the consequences of the book's misrepresentation of one of Western art's most influential artists, Luke Syson states "It was important for us to provide a sensible corrective to Brown's heretical Leonardo. It will be interesting to see whether our interpretation will trigger people's imaginations". (quote source: telegraph) Head here for more info on the exhibit.
