Girl with a flute (1665-70), attributed to Vermeer.


Leonardo da Vinci. Ginevra de’ Benci, ca. 1474.


One of Leonardo’s contemporaries wrote that he painted her with such perfection that it seemed to be not a portrait but Ginevra herself.!

Furthermore, she was the first woman to be depicted in an outdoor setting.
