The drawings of Leonardo da Vinci are the richest, most wide-ranging, most technically brilliant and most endlessly fascinating of any artist. The unrivalled group of his drawings in the Royal Library at Windsor Castle is one of the greatest treasures of the Royal Collection. This selection of ten of his finest demonstrates many of the different interests of the archetypal Renaissance man.

This catalogue accompanies an exhibition organised by the Royal Collection to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen in 2012.

Martin Clayton is Senior Curator of Prints and Drawings in the Royal Library, Windsor Castle.
