Painting of a woman

This painting was created by Leonardo Da Vinci in 1508 in Milan, Italy.  It is a simple study of a young woman that is painted on a wooden panel.

This painting was even featured in the movie "Ever After" which was a Cinderella type story. 

Leonardo Da Vinci did many paintings of women, and he often did studies of some women that he would later use as his main models in larger paintings.  This is a very simple picture, however, it has very beautifl details and the blening of the shadows on the face are done so softly it could have been a photograph except for the fact that the hair is done very roughly.

What are your thoughts on this piece?  Do you like it or could you live without it?  Do you think it is finished?

  1. there is no picture, so i dont know what to say. either that or it was just an all white painting. so if it was an all white painting he did a good job, and proabably spent alot of time on it. but its pretty cool i like Da Vinci hes a pretty talented dude.

  3. this painting has no meaning to me. the girl is just looking at the ground. you cant really tell what she is looking at and she never looks at you. she is the worst painting ever.
