Ginevra's Story

Ginevra de Benci, the first portrait by Leonardo da Vinci, is both haunting and hypnotic. This magnificent and mysterious painting conceals a multitude of secrets. Utilizing the potential of x-ray analysis, infrared reflectography, and the power of computer technology, this DVD delves beneath the surface of the oil-on-wood portrait to unveil fascinating stories about the Master and his mesmerizing subject.

Ginevra's Story: Solving the mysteries of Leonardo da Vinci's first known portrait reveals who Ginevra was and how Leonardo came to paint her, as well as why the panel is painted on both sides, how it was drastically cut down, why it was sealed in the safety of a wine cellar, and what mysterious chain of events brought it to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, where it remains the only da Vinci painting that resides in the Americas.

The director, Joseph Krakora, explores the many facets of this mystifying portrait with help from such recognizable voices as Meryl Streep (English version narrator) and Isabella Rossellini (Italian version narrator).

Directed by Joseph Krakora. Narrated by Meryl Streep (English version) and Isabella Rosselini (Italian version).

DVD. 56 minutes.
