General information

Leonardo Da Vinci: A Life In Drawings

An exhibition which will provide an unparalleled insight into the workings of the artist's mind, 'Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing' is part of a nationwide event organised by Royal Collection Trust to mark 500 years since the Renaissance master's death. In total, 144 of Leonardo's drawings will go on display in 12 simultaneous exhibitions across the UK, in an initiative designed to give the widest-ever UK audience the opportunity to see the work of this extraordinary artist.

The Ulster Museum's exhibition will include two of Leonardo's most famous works – The Head of St Anne, made around 1510 in preparation for his famous masterpiece The Virgin and Child with St Anne, which hangs in the Louvre, and an anatomical drawing from 1489, The Skull Sectioned.

The exhibition will include examples of all the drawing materials employed by the artist, including pen and ink, red and black chalks, watercolour and metalpoint.

Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing will run at the Ulster Museum from 1 February until 6 May 2019 and will be be accompanied by a series of events including special tours, lectures, art sessions and sketching workshops. Admission to the exhibition will be free.

In May 2019, following the exhibitions at Royal Collection Trust's partner venues, the drawings will be brought together to form part of an exhibition of over 200 sheets at The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace, the largest exhibition of Leonardo's work in over 65 years.
