Photographer's Note

One more picture from Wytrzyszczka (I like this name, haha) and I will go back to China.

Lady with an Ermine is a painting by Leonardo da Vinci from around 1489–1490. The subject of the portrait is Cecilia Gallerani, painted at a time when she was the mistress of Ludovico Sforza, Duke of Milan, and Leonardo was in the service of the duke. The painting is one of only four portraits of women painted by Leonardo, the others being the Mona Lisa, the portrait of Ginevra de' Benci, and La belle ferronnière. The painting was purchased in 2016 from the Czartoryski Foundation by the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage for the National Museum in Kraków and has been on display in the museum's main building since 2017.

Here the three-dimensional version of this portrait and we can see her sitting. a bit kitchy but I like the idea (promotion of the museum in Kraków).

You can see the red line on the walls. It indicated the border between the old walls and the reconstruction. Not much was left from the old castle!

Lady with a dog.

The Leonardo Masterpiece is here.
