The Leonardo Da Vinci exhibition commemorating the 500th anniversary of the artist’s death, has arrived in Liverpool.
The Walker Art Gallery, who are hosting the free exhibition, features a collection of the Renaissance master’s original work, including some of his most famous pieces including ‘Leda and the Swan.’
Drawings, geometrical sketches and paintings are more of what is being shown at the gallery.
The display demonstrates Da Vinci’s working practices with an in-depth look at his creative process, giving the public an opportunity to see the pieces for themselves.
144 pieces of Leonardo Da Vinci’s are currently on display in 12 simultaneous exhibitions across the UK.
There has been a positive response from the public, with hundreds of people turning up to the exhibition since its opening last Friday to see the artwork up close.
One person from Wirral, said: “Wonderful to see such great drawings by one of the greatest artists.”
Another from Birkenhead, said: “Very enlightening and mind opening. Still, after his death, his endurance inspires.”
Someone from Maghull said: “Fabulous to see these sketches at close quarters.”
