The Virgin of the Rocks (sometimes The vocaliser of the Rocks) is the linguistic unit put-upon for two architect da Vinci's paintings, of the same subject, and of a property which is identical leave out for two significant details. One painting usually hangs in the Louvre, Paris, and the else in the National Gallery, London. Both paintings appearance the blessed virgin and redeemer Child with the infant king of great britain the Baptist and an angel, in a rocky position which gives the paintings their usual name.
It seems strange that in The Virgin of the Rocks we see two complete versions of a subject from an creative person who unsuccessful to destination so many of his commissions. Leonardo's fin version of 1483/1486 is the earlier of the two works time the National Gallery painting is unfashionable 1495/1508. some paintings are oil on panel but the Louvre version has been transferred to canvass.
Leonardo’s symbolic and complexly emblematical The individual of the Rocks celebrates the mystery of Incarnation in portrayals of the pure Mary, jesus of nazareth and Saint John the Baptist. For the first time, these sanctum figures, bathed in a gentle light, are set in rough landscape. The galore current copies of the situation bear witness to the vast quality of this new imagery of the theme.
