An exceptional exhibition on Leonardo da Vinci will be presented at the Musée du Louvre in the fall of 2019, more than 140 works will be exhibit from October 24, 2019 to February 24, 2020. A unique group of artworks that only the Louvre could bring together, in addition to its outstanding collection of paintings and drawings by the Italian master. The year 2019 has a special significance for the Louvre, as it will mark the fifth centenary of the artist’s death at Amboise, in the Loire Valley. When his patron Giuliano de’ Medici died, Leonardo da Vinci left Italy for France at the invitation of the new French king, François I. Probably around November 1516, he arrived at the Château du Clos Lucé, a stone’s throw from the king’s residence at Amboise. The fifth centenary of the Italian master’s death is therefore a unique opportunity for the Louvre to bring as many as possible of the fourteen to seventeen paintings now attributed to Leonardo, according to specialists, to join the five large paintings in the Paris museum. The exhibition will include a large selection of drawings and a small but significant group of paintings and sculptures that will provide some tangible context. This international retrospective will present the latest research findings, critical editions of key documents and the results of the latest ysis carried out in laboratories or during recent conservation treatment by the Louvre. This exhibition retraces the life of the man and the artist through a unique retrospective. In addition to the Mona Lisa (which will not move from the room where it is exposed), it will be possible to see other paintings like « La Belle Ferronnière », le « Saint Jean Baptiste » la « Sainte Anne » which are preserved at the Louvre. Access to the exhibition will be on registration only.
