Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing


To mark the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death, twelve of his greatest drawings will be displayed 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.

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.

Ticket information available soon.
