Leonardo in London

Posted 14 January 12

An exhibition that I would really love to see before it ends on February 5th is: “Leonardo da Vinci: Painter at the court of Milan” at the National Gallery in London.
The show is dedicated to his aims and techniques as a painter and concentrates on the work he produced in Milan in the late 1480s and 1490s. Some of the artwork on display include: The Lady with an Ermine, The Madonna Litta, The Musician, The Madonna of the Yarnwinde.. and of course The Last Supper.

It’s the only time you can admire together the two versions Leonardo did of the ‘Virgin of the Rocks’ one belonging to the National Gallery (and recently restored) and the other to the Louvre!

Friends that have been lucky to see it say it’s exceptional, so it’s now on my priority list of things to see…although scoring a ticket can be very difficult since they’ve been sold out online for months!!
