"NEW: Leonardo da Vinci in Sainsbury Wing." The National Gallery Tip by breughel

The National Gallery, London: 131 reviews and 182 photos

  "The Lady with an Ermine" Leonardo da Vinci.
by breughel

From 9 November 2011 to 5 February 2012 there is a special exhibition: " Leonardo da Vinci: Painter at the Court of Milan".

According to the National Gallery: "Painter at the Court of Milan’ is the most complete display of Leonardo’s rare surviving paintings ever held. This unprecedented exhibition – the first of its kind anywhere in the world – brings together sensational international loans never before seen in the UK."

For me the best of the about 90 works (paintings, designs, sketches and studies) is the "Lady with an Ermine" which unfortunately I could not see in Krakow.
I prefer this portrait to "La Joconde - Mona Lisa" which remains in Paris.
