Queen lends Leonardo da Vinci works to Glasgow museum
A Glasgow museum has landed a major Leonardo da Vinci art display to mark the 500th anniversary of his death.
The Queen has lent 12 da Vinci drawings to Kelvingrove Museum as part of a celebration of the work of one of the world's greatest artists.
A selection from the Royal Collection will go to 12 venues across the UK before they come together for a larger exhibition in 2019.
Kelvingrove is the only Scottish museum to host the event.
Highlights of the exhibition in Glasgow include "A star-of-Bethlehem and other plants" c.1506-12 and "The anatomy of a bear's foot", c.1488-90.
The exhibition, Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing, will be displayed simultaneously in the 12 locations from February until May with different works on view in each.
A total of 144 drawings will go on show.
