Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing

Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing

Details

To mark the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death, we will be displaying twelve of his greatest drawings as part of #Leonardo500 – a national celebration of this extraordinary artist.

The drawings are from the Royal Collection which contains the world’s finest collection of Leonardo’s works. In February 2019, a total of 144 of Leonardo’s exquisite drawings will be on show in 12 simultaneous exhibitions across the UK, including National Museum Cardiff. These exhibitions will be followed by major displays at The Queen’s Galleries in Buckingham Palace and the Palace of Holyrood House in Edinburgh.

The works have been selected to show the extraordinary scope of the artist’s interests – painting, sculpture, architecture, music, anatomy, engineering, cartography, geology and botany - as well as his use of different media – pen and ink, red and black chalks, watercolour and metal point.
