A river landscape


RCIN 912400

Leonardo drew the scene from a window in the family villa of his pupil, Francesco Melzi, at Vaprio, east of Milan. It shows the river Adda flowing towards us over shallow rapids, with a chain ferry carrying oxen and a herdsman. The drawing testifies to the precision of Leonardo’s touch and eyesight, even as he turned 60.
