Leonardo da Vinci exhibition opens at London's National Gallery
Date Posted: 09/11/11
Art lovers can now see the largest collection of surviving paintings from Leonardo da Vinci after an exhibition opened at London's National Gallery.
The display, titled Painter at the Court of Milan, is available for those booking weekend breaks to witness up until Sunday February 5th 2012 and tickets are already in great demand with the show sold out until the middle of December.
A majority of the work focuses on da Vinci's spell as a court artist between the 1480s and 1490s, with nine paintings and a number of other drawings making up the exhibit.
Among the paintings are The Lady with an Ermine and two separate versions of The Virgin of the Rocks which have been hung together for the very first time.
The exhibition has been made up of loaned pieces from the Louvre in Paris, the Vatican Art Gallery in Rome and Saint Petersburg's Hermitage Museum.
Next year, between Wednesday March 14th and Tuesday June 5th, Turner Inspired: in the light of Claude will be held at the National Gallery, bringing together oils, watercolours and sketchbooks inspired by two great artists.
