An exceptional cultural experience; Leonardo da Vinci at the Louvre
The year 2019 marks the 500th anniversary of the death of the famous Leonardo da Vinci. This is of great importance to the Louvre, as this renowned museum boasts the world’s largest collection of paintings by the Florentine artist, as well as 22 of his drawings. This unprecedented retrospective shows how the Renaissance polymath raised painting to a higher level and offers an insight into his artistic techniques and practices. You will also learn about his life via archival documents. Featuring the Louvre’s own collection and items on loan from museums across the world, this is the greatest Leonardo da Vinci exhibition of all time.
A unique experience
