LEONARDO DA VINCI : A LIFE IN DRAWING

PRIVATE CURATOR LED TOUR
TUESDAY, 10 SEPTEMBER 2019: 8.30 am
QUEEN'S GALLERY, BUCKINGHAM PALACE, LONDON

This private tour was led by Martin Clayton, curator of this exhibition marking the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci's death, at The Queen's Gallery. More than 200 drawings were on display, the largest exhibition of the artist's work in over 65 years. It explored the full range of Leonardo's interests - painting, sculpture, architecture, anatomy, engineering, cartography, geology and botany - providing a comprehensive survey of his life and a unique insight into the workings of his mind.

   
Martin Clayton, Head of Prints and Drawings, said 'The drawings of Leonardo da Vinci are both beautiful and the main source of our knowledge of the artist. We hope that as many people as possible will take this unique opportunity to see these extraordinary works, which allow us to enter one of the greatest minds in history'
