Newly identified portraits of Da Vinci to go on display

May 02, 2019 16:59 IST

As the world marks the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo Da Vinci, this newly identified portrait of the legendary artist and inventor, is going on display in London . Aside from self-portraits, only one other portrait has survived from the artist's lifetime. Martin Clayton was researching an exhibition for The Queen's Gallery in London when he identified the sketch as a study of Leonardo made by an unidentified assistant shortly before the master's death in 1519. The sketch will be showcased for the first time in the largest display of Da Vinci's work in more than 65 years from 24 May to 13 October at the Queen's Gallery in Buckingham Palace.
