“Madonna and Pomegranate” is the earliest, quite touching and direct Madonna, which was created by the great painter and master Leonardo. Each of the following images with the Madonna will be very close in its compositional and stylistic component to the “Madonna with Pomegranate”.
The painter had a special composition, with the help of which he specially left the presence of “windows of incompleteness” on the finished work. Most likely, in this way, he tried to leave a place where life itself could play its key role and make certain corrections to this unique work.
The canvas emphasizes the artist’s desire to give the woman more fame, like the Madonna. The central part of the work, which draws its attention primarily to the softened gesture of the hand of the Madonna, attracts the attention of viewers especially. Her lowered eyes emphasize modesty and sadness.
The baby is presented in the form of a sculpted and seemingly living child who is happy to grab hold of and play with his mother's hair. Each detail of the painting entered by the master displays maximum realism and is clearly visible.
Madonna’s large forehead is framed by light hair descending on her shoulders in the form of golden curls. Some imbalances in the child’s body are explained by the absence of a baby who could pose for a painter or the presence of a desire to specifically give them variability, so that the unearthly origin of the child is as fully emphasized as possible.
Leonardo da Vinci painted this picture in the year fourteen hundred and seventy. The work is currently located in the United States of America, or rather, in the art gallery located in Washington.
