To mark the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, Leeds Art Gallery will display a selection of the Renaissance master's greatest drawings.

The Royal Collection Trust exhibition spans twelve cities throughout the UK and provides a once-in-a-generation opportunity to see these drawings up close.

Although none of Leonardo's sculptures survive to this day, A Life in Drawing provides an unparalleled insight into his investigations. Step into one of the greatest minds in history to explore the techniques he adopted and rarely seen work from a highly prized collection.
