Leonardo worked on the composition of this painting for over 15 years. Numerous sketches and cartoons bear witness to what was a very long process of research and painting. Some images have been discovered recently on the reverse of the painting, depicting part of a skull, a horse's head and a child.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
