Leonardo Da Vinci By Cadet Ruvalcaba
Another one of Leonardo’s famous paintings was “ The Virgin of the Rocks”. This is a painting generally accredited to Leonardo da Vinci, between 1495 and 1508. It was stolen from Florence during the Napoleonic wars and recovered in a small town in Austria some 50 years afterwards. Since then, it was bought by a French merchant before being sold to the National Gallery in London in the 19th century. The Virgin or Madonna of the Rocks is the first work that Leonardo executed in Milan.
