The creative encounter between individual artists and sitters is explored in this major exhibition featuring portrait drawings by some of the outstanding masters of the Renaissance and Baroque periods. 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.
