Museums across the world are celebrating the art and legacy of the Italian painter, sculptor, architect, and engineer. The UK postal service, the Royal Mail, is issuing a run of stamps featuring some of the artist’s most renowned drawings to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the artist’s death.
In tandem with the special edition, twelve culture institutions throughout the UK will be showcasing a total of 144 of da Vinci’s works in the dispersed show Leonardo da Vinci : A life in Drawing. The exhibitions opened at the beginning of February and are on view through May 6, 2019 in Glasgow, Cardiff, Bristol, Leeds, and other UK cities. Stamps sets are available from Royal Mail
