The Benois Madonna
by Leonardo da Vinci

The Hermitage contains two paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, the 1478 Benois Madonna (Madonna with a Flower - shown out of focus above) and the 1480's Litta Madonna. The Benois Madonna was acquired by the Hermitage early in the twentieth century from the collection the Russian architect Leonty Benois.
