Everyone knows the name of Leonardo da Vinci, the greatest genius of all time, the founding father of the Renaissance epoch. His enigmatic paintings are unique. The film tells the story behind one of them, “The Virgin and Child with St. Anne”, revealing its secrets and history of restoration.
This exceptional work of art belongs to the later period of the artist’s life.
The painting refers to the innermost part of human life – the family Leonardo never had. Neither he had any apprentices nor like-minded successors, nor any affections.
Love and care try to get the unreasonable humankind from the ground, calling for mercy for all (Jesus Christ and a lamb); and wisdom provides guidance and support for love (Anna and Madonna).
Enjoy the movie!
