A tally of the comments shows the Last Supper to be readers' favorite Da Vinci work, followed closely by the Mona Lisa. Other favorites include the Benois Madonna, the Lady with the Ermine, the Virgin of the Rocks, the Adoration, the Annunciation, the Belle Ferronnière, the Virgin with the Spindle, and Da Vinci's scientific drawings. I'd have to choose the Virgin and Child with St. Anne myself--the faces are so beautiful! It will be interesting to see which works Robin Maxwell mentions in SIGNORA DA VINCI.
In a happy coincidence, I'm awarding these books on my blogoversary. One year ago today I began posting here at Writing the Renaissance. A great thank you to all my loyal readers who visit often and share their thoughts on the day's topic. It's been great fun getting to know you and sharing my love for the Renaissance. And I hope new visitors who came for the contest liked what they saw and will stick around.
Here's to the new year--may it be filled with joy, wonderful books, and dreams realized for all!
