Leonardo da Vinci: Painter at the Court of Milan

While numerous exhibitions have looked at Leonardo da Vinci as an inventor, scientist or draughtsman, Leonardo da Vinci: Painter at the Court of Milan is the first dedicated to his aims and techniques as a painter.
Inspired by the recently restored Virgin of the Rocks, it focuses on the work produced during his career as court painter to Duke Lodovico Sforza in the 1480s and 90s.
After our private hour-long illustrated talk by Renaissance scholar Dr Richard Stemp to enhance our enjoyment and knowledge of the exhibition, we proceed to view with timed tickets for a noon entry.
