Drawings by Da Vinci

TEN stunning Leonardo da Vinci drawings are to go on display in Dundee next year at the award-winning McManus Galleries.

A touring exhibition will make its only Scottish stop in the city as part of celebrations for the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen next year.

The drawings have been selected from the unparalleled holdings of the Royal Library.

They have been selected to reflect Leonardo’s use of different media and the extraordinary range of his activities - paintings and sculpture, engineering, botany, mapmaking, hydraulics and anatomy.

It is being seen as a unique opportunity to see some of the most fascinating drawings ever produced, and to engage first-hand with one of the greatest minds of all time.

The exhibition opens at the refurbished McManus on August 31 next year and runs until November 4.
