Leonardo da Vinci: Painting "Lady with an Ermine" (1488-90) in museum framing

The ermine in its winter fur is a symbol of purity. This portrait is a significant turning point in Leonardo’s painting: his goal was not the accurate reproduction, but rather the representation of individuality and hidden symbolism.
Original: oil on walnut wood, Muzeum Narodowe, Krakau.

For a brilliant, authentic reproduction, the original was transferred, using a fine art giclée technique, directly on real art canvas of 100% cotton and stretched on a wedge frame. Limited series of 199 exemplars, with certificate. Framed in hand-made baroque museum framing gilded with foil gold. Format 59 x 78 cm. Exclusively at ars mundi.

Leonardo Vinci (1452-1519) is considered the greatest polymath of the art and history of science. His inventions, works of art and studies, but also his mysterious life, deal with today science and literature.

The universal genius Leonardo da Vinci, epitome of the Renaissance man, was a painter, sculptor, architect, writer, theorist, naturalist, inventor and technician all in one. Although he had learned as an illegitimate child in the primary school barely read, write and count, he prevailed early thanks to his unique talent for training as a painter and sculptor in the workshop of Verrocchios, and soon tried to gain a position at one of the farms. Temporarily succeeded, for the Duke of Milan or for Cesare Borgia, to operate the Pope or the French King.

His life was filled with that humanistic view of humanity and universal knowledge and pressing urge, which was characteristic for its era. Constantly observing, registering, and analysing, he created alone as a scientist and engineer a huge factory. For example, he dealt with the geological information and the cloud formation, the flow of the water and the air, the bird's flight and apparatus, which should allow the flight of people.

His work as an artist is, however, less, but occupies the highest rank such as the "Last supper" and "Mona Lisa".

His artistic quest for compositions with moderate-quiet basic geometric shapes prepared the High Renaissance. His later approaches to regard the phenomenal world in their transformation by air and light, even have been expected on the Baroque painting.

Graphic or sculpture edition that was initiated by ars mundi and is available only at ars mundi or at distribution partner licensed by ars mundi.

Giclée = derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spray".

Giclée method is a digital printing process. It is a high-resolution, large-format printout on an inkjet printer with special different coloured or pigment-based inks (usually six to twelve). The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.

The Giclée process is suitable for real art canvas, handmade and watercolor paper and for silk.

(Rebirth). Designation of art from about 1350 until the 16th century.

A state of mind that developed in Florence in the late 14th century that was retrospectively classified as rebirth of the classical ideals of Greek and Roman antiquity. During the 15th and 16th centuries, the Renaissance spread first over Italy and then all over Western Europe and determined the entire artistic creation. Such brilliant artists as Donatello, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Dürer, Holbein, Cranach and Fouquet created their immortal works by following the humanistic premises and putting a human being in the center of all thinking.

Renaissance experienced its heyday in literature through dramatic works and poems of William Shakespeare.

At the end of the 16th century, Renaissance had to make way to the luxury of baroque before its ideas had their rebirth in the classicism of the 18th century.
