Da Vinci’s obsession

Leonardo da Vinci worked on the painting for four years, and possibly at intervals after that. He always took it with him when he travelled, and he never signed or dated it. 

The picture went with him when, towards the end of his life, he moved to France.

At that time, it was not seen as particularly interesting, but in the middle of the 19th century Leonardo’s stock as an artist slowly rose. 

He came to be seen as the equal of the two acknowledged Renaissance greats, Michelangelo and Raphael.
