To mark the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death in 2019, some of the Renaissance master’s greatest drawings will go on display at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace.
The Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing exhibition will bring together over 200 drawings by Leonardo from the Royal Collection – the largest exhibition of the artist’s work in over 65 years.
Leonardo da Vinci practised as a painter, sculptor, architect, engineer, costume designer, anatomist, botanist, map-maker and more. The activity that unified these interests was drawing. Leonardo drew to develop his artistic and engineering projects, to record his perceptions of the world around him, to explore his own imagination and to think.
Don’t miss your chance to see the work of this extraordinary artist, providing an unparalleled insight into Leonardo's investigations and the workings of his mind.
