LONDON, July 23 (UPI) -- London's National Gallery says it is borrowing paintings from all over the world for its exhibition "Leonardo Da Vinci: Painter at the Court of Milan."

The show, which is to run from November 2011 through February 2012 will feature paintings never seen before in the United Kingdom. It is expected to be the most complete display of the Renaissance artist's paintings ever held, the BBC said.

The museum will borrow "La Belle Ferroniere" from the Louvre museum in Paris; the "Madonna Litta" from the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg, Russia; "Saint Jerome" from Pinacoteca Vaticana in Rome; and a full-scale copy of "Last Supper" from the Royal Academy, the British broadcaster said.
