The Renaissance period saw a dramatic transformation in the way that artists worked, with a new-found appreciation for creativity pushing artistic boundaries. Drawing became central to this development, evolving from an essential tool of workshop practice to an exciting art form in its own right.

The Royal Collection holds one of the world’s greatest groups of Italian drawings. Through around 160 works on paper by artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael and Titian alongside lesser-known artists, this exhibition will reveal the diversity and accomplishment of drawing across Italy during this revolutionary period.

The exhibition is taking place at The King's Gallery, Buckingham Palace, formerly known as The Queen’s Gallery.

The income from your ticket contributes directly to The Royal Collection Trust, a registered charity. The aims of The Royal Collection Trust are the care and conservation of the Royal Collection, and the promotion of access and enjoyment through exhibitions, publications, loans and educational activities.
