Treasures from Chatsworth: Da Vinci's Drawing of Leda and the Swan
Chatsworth in Derbyshire is filled with exceptional artworks and antiques, but one of the most unusual and intriguing pieces of all is a hand-drawn sketch by Leonardo Di Vinci. Directly connecting Chatsworth House to the Old Masters, this unique piece depicts a famous episode from Grecian mythology, where Zeus appears as a swan to seduce the mother of Helen of Troy, Leda.
In the third of Huntsman's short films for Sotheby's, which takes you inside the corridors of Chatsworth and within this exclusive Old Master cabinet, discover this fascinating masterpiece that was almost lost in the chaos of the Second World War.
Look out for new episodes on H&A TV each week.
