Head of a woman called "La Scapigliata"

An exhibition dedicated to the head of a young woman (called La Scapigliata), a painting carried out in umber, green amber and white lead on wood. The painting, perhaps unfinished, is shrouded in mystery as to its date (probably 1508), origin and destination. It was also supposed that the work could be a study for Leda with the Swan, a lost work. The exhibition is housed in the National Gallery, in an environment located in the north-west wing of the Pilotta Complex, and is chronologically part of the labyrinthine and evocative museum itinerary of the Gallery, placing itself between the halls dedicated to the early Renaissance and the sixteenth century.
