Exhibition on Screen presents the definitive film about the world's favourite artist.

Leonardo da Vinci is acclaimed as the world’s favourite artist. Many TV shows and feature films have showcased this extraordinary genius but often not examined closely enough is the most crucial element of all: his art. Leonardo’s peerless paintings and drawings will be the focus of Leonardo: The Works, as Exhibition on Screen presents every single attributed painting, never seen before on one screen. Key works include The Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, Lady with an Ermine, Ginevra de’ Benci, Madonna Litta, Virgin of the Rocks, and more than a dozen others.

This film also looks afresh at Leonardo’s life – his inventiveness, his sculptural skills, his military foresight and his ability to navigate the treacherous politics of the day – through the prism of his art. Released in cinemas in 2019 on the 500th anniversary of his death, this is the definitive film about Leonardo: the first to truly tell the whole story.

Available to watch on QFT Player in the UK and Ireland from Fri 29 May to Thurs 4 June.
