The Encounter – Drawings from Leonardo to Rembrandt

This is an INCREDIBLE exhibition of some of the most delicate portraits ever created.

Drawn from the holdings of British collections, exquisite observational drawings by artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Holbein, and Rembrandt will be on display in a celebration of portrait drawing from life, during a time of extraordinary artistic ingenuity.

I suggest you go more than once, to really appreciate the beauty.
