From 30 march to 1st june 2020 : Gabriele Reina, in the time of François I and Leonardo da Vinci
In spring, the exhibition gallery of the château will welcome an impressive presentation of heraldic banners in dazzling colours, as Gabriele Reina invites us on a journey through history with the art of the symbol. Featuring the arms of François I, Jean Breton – who built Villandry in the Renaissance – or even Leonardo da Vinci, the coats of arms he paints in oil on large pieces of fabric commemorate an ancillary science of history, whereby great painting was linked with the magic of the most mythical animals in the fertile Mediaeval imagination.
Exhibition included in the château’s entrance fee
