Leonardo da Vinci Virgin and Child with  St. Anne c. 1510.jpg

Leonardo da Vinci "Virgin and Child with St. Anne" c. 1510.jpg

This beautiful Leonardo painting being discussed by the couple shown here, is the culmination of several drawings and studies on the subject of the Virgin ,
who is seated on the lap of her mother, St. Anne, and reaching out to the Child who is playing with the symbolic lamb.
Recent research has found several drawings on the back of the canvas that relate to other works of Leonardo.

Many visitors to the Louvre walk by wonderful paintings such as this one by Leonardo , as well as others by Leonardo's contemporaries like Raphael,
in their haste to see the Mona Lisa whose fame has eclipsed equally important works by these artists.
