daVinci- Lady with an Ermine

This portrait of Ludovico Sforza's most important mistress has a dynamism that goes far beyond the conventions applying to portraiture in Milan at the time. The ermine was regarded as a symbo of purtiy and virtue, but was also an allusion to Ludovico Sforza, Cecilia's lover.
