"La Scapigliata" by Leonardo da Vinci
Translated into English as The Lady with Disheveled Hair, this small painting is generally believed to be by Leonardo da Vinci. This work is renowned for its subtle use of the sfumato technique, something Leonardo was known for, and is also recognized for its sublime beauty and attention to detail. The purpose of the painting is unknown, and certain art historians suggest that it was meant to be a study for a larger work or an exercise in aesthetics. It is currently housed in Galleria Nazionale di Parma where it entered the collection in 1826.
