Lady with an Ermine

This masterpiece of Renaissance art, one of a handful of Renaissance portraitscompleted by Leonardo da Vinci, was commissioned by Ludovico Sforza - known as "il Moro", Duke of Milan, for whom Leonardo worked during the period c.1482-99.

The lady - actually a 16-year old girl - is Cecilia Gallerani, reputedly the Duke's favourite mistress, who gave birth to his child in the same year that he married Beatrice d'Este. Holding the armorial animal of Ludovico il Moro in her arms, she is shown turning to the right, her eyes fixed on something off camera, with a hint of a smile on her lips. One of the finest Renaissance paintingsLady with an Ermine is the main highlight of the Czartoryski Museum in Krakow.
