This collection features the reproduction of 139 drawings by Leonardo da Vinci and his circle whose originals are housed in some of the most renowned British collections, including the British Museum, the National Gallery, the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, and the National Gallery of Scotland, among others. Seventy drawings have been attributed to Leonardo himself, while the others are the work of his pupils and followers. Showcasing a spectrum of themes from detailed anatomical studies and dynamic equestrian sketches to religious scenes and fantastic compositions, these works highlight the breadth of Leonardo's innovation, offering a window into the diverse techniques employed by the Renaissance master.

While some of the drawings are produced with meticulous lines and checked, others seem jotted down in just a few seconds. The inclusion of both preliminary sketches and wonderfully executed boards which could be considered stand-alone works of art, makes it possible to trace down the different stages of Leonardo's creative process.

We have 1 facsimile edition of the manuscript "Drawings by Leonardo da Vinci and His Circle - British Collections (Collection)": I disegni di Leonardo da Vinci e della sua cerchia - Collezioni in Gran Bretagna facsimile edition, published by Giunti Editore, 2010

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
