Working with Royal Collection Trust has enabled us to bring these fantastic works to Derby, a city of makers. Leonardo is an inspiration to makers across the world, and this exhibition has the potential to engage the whole city.
At the event, Royal Collection Trust's Martin Clayton, Head of Prints and Drawings and a specialist in the drawings of Leonardo, will be sharing plans for the exhibition along with details of the works on show. Twelve drawings have been selected to reflect the full range of Leonardo's interests, including painting, sculpture, architecture, music, anatomy, engineering, cartography, geology and botany. The exhibition provides a great chance to create a range of learning opportunities and activities linked to Leonardo's work to inspire people of all ages across all our communities. We hope that you will be able to join us and share your ideas on how we can make the most of this unique opportunity for our city.
