  • LEONARDO DA VINCI: PAINTER AT THE COURT OF MILAN IN LONDON FROM NOVEMBER 9

    LEONARDO DA VINCI: Painter at the Court of Milan’ at the National Gallery in London from November 9 is to be the most complete display of Leonardo’s rare surviving paintings ever held. It focuses on his time as court painter to the Sforza rulers of Milan in the 1480’s and ’90’s. The exhibition brings together around 60 drawings and paintings, the largest number of Leonardo’s ever to be lent to a single show.  Even though he is one of the greatest artists who ever lived, this is the first show to focus on Leonardo’s innovations as a painter.

    The exhibition, sponsored by Credit-Suisse, will run from November 9 2011 to February 5, 2012.
