The Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace in London was built specially to exhibit pieces from the collection on a rotating basis. There is a similar art gallery next to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, and a Drawings Gallery at Windsor Castle. The Crown Jewels are on public display in the Jewel House at the Tower of London. The collection's holdings of Western fine art are among the largest and most important assemblages in existence, with works of the highest quality, and in many cases artists whose works cannot be fully understood without a study of the holdings contained within the Royal Collection.

The Royal Collection’s drawings by Leonardo da Vinci don't leave their protected sanctuary at Windsor Castle . The Queen’s Gallery exhibition at Buckingham Palace, which runs through October 13, is bound to draw large crowds.

The Royal Collection’s drawings by Leonardo da Vinci don't leave their protected sanctuary at Windsor Castle very often. But 2019, which marks the 500th anniversary of the artist’s death, is different. Already this year, 12 smaller displays of the Royal Collection’s drawings at venues across the United Kingdom drew one million visitors-far exceeding expectations.

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was arguably the greatest draftsman in the history of Western art. Best known as a painter, he also excelled as a sculptor, architect, musician, anatomist, botanist, engineer, geologist, and mapmaker. But since he completed few of his projects, most of his work is known to us only through his drawings and notes.The collection of drawings by Leonardo at Windsor Castle is the most important in the world. This selection from Windsor Castle of one hundred sheets covers every aspect of his genius, reproducing in color for the first time many unfamiliar drawings as well as a range of better-known works.Included are preparatory sketches for the paintings such as the Adoration of the Magi and the Last Supper, designs for equestrian monuments, war machines, and costumes for court entertainments; studies relating to his enduring interest in water, flight, the divinely beautiful, and the comically grotesque; his striking and highly accurate maps; his analyses of human and equine proportion; and his studies in anatomy, taking the subject single-handedly from medieval traditions to the threshold of modern knowledge.

Lovely psychological analysis of Leonardo by the first man of the field. Though Freud himself later acknowledged he mistranslated “vulture” ( it should have been the kite bird), much of this profile gives food for thought.

Very authoritative, but it is aimed at art scholars and not the average reader.

Anything Sir Kenneth does is excellent in my book.

Beautifully written, referenced, full of drawings in black and white. Some frames in colour. Comprehensive review of Leonardo's life and works. Wonderful quality book despite or inspite its age. Printed in Italy. Unfortunately the last of the great art books.

This book has to be one of THE best books I have purchased over the years of Da Vinci's work.
Not only does it show his work, but compares it to the artists that influenced him.
I love the quality of the photos and the close ups of the art is wonderful, showing great details, but THE BEST part is the section devoted to the Last Supper! It show not only the "Before" the restoration but the "After."
I was blown away at how much color and details were stripped for the "restoration". The Before shows how rich the colors were and for those who are fans of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code, it really makes you wonder if that isn't a portrait of Mary.
It is really worth every penny. I am so glad I got this one. I will not be letting go of it any time soon!

I have a number of books from this series ("Library of Great Painters") that I've been working my way through after sitting on the shelf for a number of years. With very little art knowledge learning to appreciate the art of these masters has been rewarding especially the descriptions and explanations of the color plates, here this book disappoints. While most of the other books have all different paintings displayed I learned through this book that Leonardo had very few works that have survived and can be attributed to him. Many of the plates then are details of one work or pieces that once were attributed to him or are collaborative works that are speculated as to what he did or what remains of what he did. The drawings are definitely the highlight as well as the biographical information. Do I regret having the book, no and I would still recommend it.

whatever I can learn about Leonardo is a plus for me.
If you are a fan of Leonardo da Vinci, then this is a must read. Very educational.
