Description
Drawings of Leonardo da Vinci and His Circle - Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan

Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519) is regarded as the most significant universal genius of the Italian Renaissance. His artistic works – the great paintings above all – are world famous to this day. These 53 drawings include the studies of horses and human beings, with a particular focus given to faces both beautiful and grotesque. In fact, there is an extraordinary amount of attention paid to unusual or exaggerated facial features in these studies. They originate from the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan, which has one of the most extensive Leonardo collections in the world, including the famous 12-volume Codex Atlanticus.
