February – Leonardo da Vinci

To put it simply, Leonardo da Vinci is a world subject. His drawings are universally recognised as among the most technically accomplished of any artist. The full collection of around 600 of his drawings at Windsor Castle is among the most important in the world and has been pre-eminent in the study of Leonardo for centuries.

In fact, one of the greatest collections of his work is owned by Her Majesty the Queen within the Royal Collection Trust, housed in the Royal Library at Windsor Castle. Some of his finest works housed within the Royal Collection have now been reproduced in an elegant issue of twelve Special Stamps.
