Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing

About

The Walker Art Gallery will host an exhibition of artwork by Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) to mark the 500th anniversary of the artist's death. Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing (1 February to 6 May 2019) will explore the diversity of subjects that inspired Leonardo's creativity across 12 drawings.


The free exhibition will be held as part of a nationwide event organised by Royal Collection Trust, in which 144 of the Renaissance master's greatest drawings in the Royal Collection will go on display in 12 simultaneous exhibitions across the nation, giving the widest-ever UK audience the opportunity to see the work of this extraordinary artist.


Leonardo was unique in his range of achievements, and drawing lay at the heart of his work. He drew to prepare his artistic projects, to record the world around him, to pursue his scientific speculations, and to make his imagination visible.
The drawings at the Walker depict subjects including a stormy apocalypse, a masquerader in costume and a river view with a ferryboat, alongside detailed botanical, anatomical and geometrical studies.
