This exhibition celebrates the 60th birthday of HRH The Prince of Wales. It's a rare chance to see ten of the Royal Collection's finest drawings by the Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci (1452 - 1519).

From an exquisite study of a human skull, to a map and a drawing of an arsenal, many of these delicate drawings have never been on permanent display due to their fragile nature.

The Royal Collection contains the world's most important group of drawings by Leonardo da Vinci, and these ten drawings are among the greatest treasures of the collection. 

Read more about the exhibition and see examples of the drawings on the Royal Collection's website.
