This show aims to put into a modern persepective all the different things brought to us by Leonardo. Artists of today discuss their debt to Leonardo and to the Renaissance era in general .Two pieces have been lent to the exhibition by the National Museums of artwork: Gabrielle d’Estrée as Artemis and the Judgement of Midas.

In the halls of the castle, and seen through the eyes of over thirty contemporary artists, the exhibition presents all the different facets of the works of Leonardo da Vinci: self-portrait, feminine portrait, extraordinary machinery, drapery, anatomy, history painting, codex, and landscape painting. The exhibition also sheds light on the flow of influences between France and Italy, from the early sixteenth Century to the works of Italian female artists of today
