The Ashmolean Museum

Imagining Leonardo - CLOSED

At the Ashmolean, Britain's oldest museum, the exhibition Imagining Leonardo will have at its core a group of Leonardo drawings and will focus on how his work was visualised and interpreted by artists and collectors over the centuries. Other parts of the collection such as the famous painting, The Forest Fire, by Piero di Cosimo, will be highlighted to show how other artists explored Leonardo's ideas on art.

The exhibition is part of a larger itinerary around Oxford, entitled Leonardo and Oxford: Discovering the World of Leonardo in Oxford’s collections. Other Oxford museums participating in the itinerary are Christ Church Picture Gallery, Magdalen College, The Museum of the History of Science and The University of Oxford Botanic Garden.
