Madonna in the rocks. Description of Leonardo da Vinci’s painting

This picture is as mysterious and strange as the very personality of Leonardo da Vinci – an extraordinary artist, sculptor, engineer and naturalist who wrote it.

The talented Italian managed to complete only a very small number of works, but nevertheless painted two paintings under the same name, almost identical, differing only in minor details.

Because scholastic ideas and ways of thinking come into contact with naive fantasies and begin their interpenetration into each other, giving rise to a special means of representation, when an abstract concept is transmitted using a real character.

Most often these are allegorical images of peace and war, love and hate, justice and discord, glory and shame portrayed as human beings. Continue reading
