This painting was created by Leonardo Da Vinci in 1508 in Milan, Italy. It is a simple study of a young woman that is painted on a wooden panel.
This painting was even featured in the movie "Ever After" which was a Cinderella type story.
Leonardo Da Vinci did many paintings of women, and he often did studies of some women that he would later use as his main models in larger paintings. This is a very simple picture, however, it has very beautifl details and the blening of the shadows on the face are done so softly it could have been a photograph except for the fact that the hair is done very roughly.
