Da Vinci's Diva: (a.k.a. Leonardo: The Artist and the Man)
"A considerable work of assimilative scholarship and common sense...races along merrily."--The Boston Globe.
The text from this monochromatic painting comes from a biography of Leonardo da Vinci. The square formatted canvas measures 36" x 36" and the hair is created with a plaster finish reminiscent of a fresco.
The Head of a Woman, (also known as La Scapigliata) is an unfinished painting da Vinci, dating from perhaps around 1500 and housed in the Galleria Nazionale di Parma, Italy.
