Leonardo da Vinci Lady with an Ermine Painting Print
Leonardo da Vinci's Lady with an Ermine. The woman in the painting is Cecilia Gallerani who was 16 when the portrait was painted. The ermine she holds is an allusion to Lodovico Sforza, who sometimes went by the name ermellino bianco (white ermine). Leonardo could not paint the couple together because of Ludovico and Beatrice d’Este’s planned wedding and so he was portrayed allegorically as an ermine, which covers the pregnancy of Cecilia at the same time. Later she gave birth to his son – Cesare.
This mounted print fits into an A4 frame (not included).
