Was the Madonna of the Yarnwinder really painted by Leonardo da Vinci? To answer this question, researchers and art restorers analyze the painting's style and composition, the quality of the original paint layer and nature of the pigments, and Da Vinci’s letters. They also compare the painting with its various copies, as well as with the Mona Lisa and the Virgin and Child with Saint Anne, two masterpieces painted in the same period and now housed in the Louvre. This film is an in-depth investigation that seeks to unravel the mystery surrounding the painting. Digital technologies are used to investigate Da Vinci’s life, marked as it was by triumphs and failures.
