About

The Royal Collection holds one of the world’s greatest collections of drawings by Leonardo da Vinci. This spring, 12 of these exquisite drawings will travel to Derby for a special exhibition marking the 500th anniversary of the Renaissance master’s death. Never-before seen in the city, the works have been gathered together to reflect the full range of Leonardo’s interests from painting, sculpture, architecture and music to anatomy, engineering, cartography, geology and botany. As so much of his life’s work was unrealised or destroyed, it is only in these drawings, and a handful of related manuscripts, that Leonardo’s greatest achievements survive.

This exhibition is part of a nationwide event, with simultaneous shows of Leonardo’s drawings in Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield, Southampton and Sunderland, providing the widest-ever UK audience the opportunity to see the work of this extraordinary artist.
