See the ‘Mona Lisa’ today without having to travel to Europe. In a joint effort between the National Art Gallery, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and RAI (The Italian Public Television), the works of Leonardo da Vinci are now on display in a special exhibition at the National Art Gallery. The ‘Leonardo Opera Omnia’ exhibition showcases digital reproductions of 17 paintings by the master artist in high definition, true-to-size pieces.
This innovative ambitious project provides KLites a chance to view the works of da Vinci right here in KL. Deputy Director of National Art Gallery, Amerrudin Ahmad said, “The exhibition is as an exposure and a part of education, aiming to showcase the European civilisation and culture of the Renaissance era through visual information drawn by Leonardo da Vinci in the 16th century.”

Expect to see renowned masterpieces like the ‘Mona Lisa’, ‘The Last Supper’ and more. There’s also a special display on the ‘Codex on the Flight of Birds’, a small notebook written and illustrated by da Vinci studying the flight behaviour of birds. Best part is, there’s no need to jostle with huge crowds when trying to catch a glimpse of the ‘Mona Lisa’.
