- "Leonardo da Vinci, painter at the court of Milan" at the London National Gallery : this is an exhibition of some of Leonardo da Vinci´s most important works, painted when he worked for Duke Ludovico Sforza in Milan at the end of the 15th century. Visitors will be able to see nine Leonardo´s most important paintings in the same place. One of the most interesting aspects of this exhibition lies on the possibility of comparing the two versions of The Virgin of the Rocks (the one that belongs to the National Gallery, recently restored, and the one that makes part of the Louvre collection). Here you have two links, where you will find some of the paintings you analyzed last year, such as The lady with an ermine:
Portrait of a musician, Leonardo da Vinci
