Leonardo and the Ladies

The emergence of a new portrait attributed to Leonardo da Vinci provides an ideal opportunity to take a fresh look at the female portraits associated with the great Italian master. Professor Kemp discusses the function of Leonardo’s portraits – the role and implied presence of the patron, the status of the sitter, the connections with poetry – and whether the Mona Lisa is a portrait in the conventional sense.
