Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), Florentine artist and one of the great masters of the Renaissance, famous as a painter, sculptor, architect, engineer, and scientist. His deep love for knowledge and research was the key to both his artistic and scientific behavior.

This work called "the Lady with the Ermine" is the work of the Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci who is framed within a second golden age of the Renaissance, a period called Cinquecento. This work has characteristics of this period such as p. eg: the line, the drawing loses strength, to the detriment of the color, and the contours lack the definition they had in the Quattrocento. Small details and secondary elements are reduced. It is closely related to one of Leonardo's main works, which is none other than "La Gioconda". In both works the artist uses the sfumato technique, that is, the contours are not evident, which are achieved through the play of light and shadow.
