Glorious Exhibit Of Leonardo’s Drawings

The Telegraph: “It isn’t easy to be objective about Leonardo da Vinci. The moment you confront the ultimate Renaissance Man, you’re hit by five hundred years of hyperbole – from Vasari to Dan Brown – that knocks rational assessment aside. The ludicrous £460 million paid for his Salvator Mundi – the highest sum ever for a painting – confirms his status as a figure to whom the normal rules don’t apply.  
The one place you can get an intimate sense of Leonardo, however, is through his drawings, 200 of which are displayed in a new exhibition at the Queen’s Gallery, London, marking the 400th anniversary of his death. In terms of numbers of works, it is the biggest UK Leonardo exhibition since 1952.”
