An exhibition titled ‘Leonardo and Madonna Litta’ has opened in the Museo Poldi Pezzoli in Milan. The main item on display is the Madonna Litta by Leonardo from the Hermitage collection, TASS reports.
The Madonna Litta was created in Milan, so now the painting is back to its home land, as the director of the Museo Poldi Pezzoli put it. It took two years to organize the exhibition.
The Madonna Litta is attributed to Leonardo, though some researchers believe the author of the painting is his pupil. It was created in 1490-1491.
The painting takes its name from the House of Litta, a Milanese noble family in whose collection it was for much of the 19th century.
