Jerzy Kosalka, 1955, Poland. “Good-bye Ladies and Gentlemen”, 2004.
Lady with an Ermine has become an inspiration for a work with an ironic take… The juxtaposition of the young woman and an animal in Leonardo da Vinci’s painting has led to numerous interpretations of the work. One of the most popular is that the ermine represents Ludovico Sforza, the lover of the lady in the painting. Jerzy Kosalka has freed the animal from having to play the role of an interpretative pointer.
Lovely Lilith as an art trade for @sydarts . “Lady with an Ermine” by Leonardo da Vinci was my reference material for this drawing. It came to my mind right away when thinking of Lilith. I can’t get that painting out of my mind after staring it every summer for last decade snd it had perfect attitude for the character. Beauty created by boldness of the expression of the woman. Lilith filled last page of my diary. Kind of special thing, if you ask from me VuV
