I got tickets to see this exhibition at the National Gallery yesterday. Apparently it is sold out (for allocated timing entry) and people queue from 7am to get the 500 tickets sold daily. On top of that we found out from the newspaper, each ticket can be sold up to £250 in the black market. I got ours for £7 … LoL. Anyway, I was not willing to give the tickets away… how often would one get to see so many paintings by Leonardo all under one roof!!
Some background. The exhibition explores Leonardo da Vinci’s time in Milan when he became court painter to the city’s ruler. His stay in Milan was the most productive period of his career and transformed his ideas on the status and purpose of art.
The highlights of the exhibition includes:
If you were like me, wondering whether Mona Lisa was on display. Unfortunately she never made it. I guess The Louvre was not ready to loan her out.
