A rare chance to see ten of the Royal Collection's finest drawings by Leonardo da Vinci.
Manchester Art Gallery
Saturday 14 February 2009–Monday 4 May 2009
This exhibition celebrated the 60th birthday of HRH The Prince of Wales. It offered a rare chance to see ten of the Royal Collection’s finest drawings by the Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519).
From an exquisite study of a human skull, to a map and a drawing of an arsenal, many of these delicate drawings had never been on permanent display due to their fragile nature.
The Royal Collection contains the world’s most important group of drawings by Leonardo da Vinci, and these ten drawings are among the greatest treasures of the collection.
