In 1865, Alexander II of Russia acquired it from Count Litta, quondam minister to St Petersburg, and deposited the painting in the Hermitage Museum.

    "Madonna Litta" by Leonardo da Vinci glorifies the divine aspect of humanity in a religious sense, a major theme in Renaissance art. Leonardo da Vinci was fascinated with the human body and how it worked. He was an inventor with friends in high places. You can see the use of the finest frabrics in Madonna's bodice. Her Beguin fits her very well as if she is clothed in honor. She is wearing an undergarment as the style was in Renaissance. This now hangs in the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg.
