The famous painting is back in Milan on occasion of the celebration of the fifth centenary

Leonardo, Madonna Litta, St. Petersburg- Hermitage

Leonardo, Madonna Litta, St. Petersburg- Hermitage

Directly from the Hermitage, the famous painting attributed to Leonardo is back in Milan for this exhibition side by side to another masterpiece, created from a refined Leonardo's composition: the Madonna della Rosa, courtesy of the Poldi Pezzoli Museum, created between 1485 and 1487 by Giovanni Antonio Boltraffio, the best of Leonardo's pupils in Milan. The extraordinary opportunity of having the Madonna Litta in Milan alongside and in comparison with other works by Leonardo's pupils created in the same years will show to the public how the attribution of a work of art originates and changes over time.
