Leonardo da Vinci: A life in drawing' with Martin Clayton from the Royal Collection Trust

Wednesday, February 27, 2019 18:30 - 20:00
Time Zone: Europe/London
Local Time: Wednesday, February 27, 2019 18:30 - 20:00

To mark the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens has been selected by Royal Collection Trust to be one of 12 UK venues to host simultaneous exhibitions of 12 Leonardo da Vinci drawings. The exhibition will be on display at the Museum from Friday 1 February – Monday 6 May 2019.

On Wednesday 27 February University of Sunderland will host a talk with Martin Clayton, Head of Prints and Drawings from the Royal Collection Trust, followed by a Q&A with the audience.

Drawing was central to all Leonardo’s work as an artist and scientist. Many of his wide-ranging projects are known today only through his surviving drawings, allowing a unique and intimate insight into his mind. This talk will trace Leonardo’s career, and the development of his thought, through his beautiful drawings in the Royal Collection – focusing especially on the twelve exhibited in Sunderland.

This event is free and open to the public.

Parking on City Campus is free from 5.30pm.
