The secret of Lady with an Ermine
The woman portrayed by Leonardo, Cecilia Gallerani , is showed with her gaze wandering sideways towards what is invisible to us. Historical sources indicate that she is looking at her one and only, the one she is destined for, Ludovico Sforza. “Looking at her we can feel there is someone else around. …We see her apparently in conversation with him.”
Lady with an Ermine was created around 1490. Leonardo worked on the painting for two years. This is the artist’s only piece located and exhibited to the public in Poland. Every year, millions of people flock to Krakow with this masterpiece on their agenda.
