One of my favorite paintings by Leonardo. There was an exhibition of photographs of masterpieces in the promenade of Montevideo a few years ago. This is what I managed to shoot with a cheap Fuji camera. You can see the reflections of the buildings opposite.


The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne is an oil painting by Leonardo da Vinci depicting St. Anne, her daughter the Virgin Mary and the infant Jesus. Christ is shown grappling with a sacrificial lamb symbolizing his Passion as the Virgin tries to restrain him. The painting was commissioned as the high altarpiece for the Church of Santissima Annunziata in Florence and its theme had long preoccupied Leonardo. (Wikipedia)
