Description

We are delighted to invite you to a very special event at the Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace, marking the 500 anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci. The Royal Collection Trust presents more than 200 drawings made by Da Vinci, which were acquired consequently during the reign of Charles 2nd, forming the largest exhibition of his works in over 65 years. A talk by Martin Clayton, Head of Prints and Drawing for the Royal Collection Trust will take place prior to the viewing.


Drawing allowed Da Vinci to work out his ideas on paper, touching on his search for universal laws, underpinning the creation, and explore various interests in painting, sculpture, architecture, anatomy, engineering, cartography, geology and botany.
