DAVID BULL - Two Portraits by Leonardo: Ginevra de' Benci and the Lady with an Ermine
In January 1992, Leonardo da Vinci's portraits of Ginevra de' Benci and the Lady with an Ermine briefly came together at the National Gallery of Art, Washington. This meeting of works executed 15 years apart provided a unique opportunity to study Leonardo's growth as a painter. The author, who is Chairman of Painting Conservation at the museum, discusses
the results of the examinations undergone by the portraits, as well as their current condition and the techniques and materials used in their painting.
