Louvre gets ready for its biggest ever Leonardo exhibition
The Louvre in Paris, the world's most visited museum, is gearing up for its largest ever Leonardo da Vinci exhibition, in celebration of the 500th anniversary of the artist's death. The curators of the Louvre exhibition, Vincent Delieuvin and Louis Frank, have managed to get six Leonardo paintings on loan to add to the museum's own five, bringing the total to 11. The previous largest Leonardo exhibition, at London's National Gallery in 2011, featured nine paintings. It will be the biggest exhibition of Leonardo's paintings and probably the best collection of his drawings and scientific manuscripts." Putting so many Leonardo works together under one roof has other beneficial side effects, such as progressing the discussion on attribution.
