Two Da Vinci's paintings depicting Virgin Mary to be reunited
Two museums in London and Paris informed that they organize an exhibition that will showcase together side by side two versions of the Leonardo Da Vinci's work "Virgin Of The Rocks" which these two museums own. "The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne and John the Baptist", which hangs at the London's National Gallery, dates from between 1483 and 1486, while its counterpart at the Louvre, known as "The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne" was created 25 years earlier.
The museum from Paris will lend Da Vinci's painting to London;'s from its collection while the National Gallery will give, in turn, one drawing of this painter. Two Da Vinci's masterpieces on the same theme will be displayed within the exhibition "Court Painter of Milano", which will be opened in November and will last until February.
