The Madonna of the Rocks



A Picture tells a Thousand Words

National Gallery, Trafalgar Square WC2N
When her estranged grandfather is discovered murdered in the Louvre in Paris, Sophie Neveu is pushed together with Harvard religious symbology expert Robert Langdon. The two of them trawl through the gallery, following the cryptic trail left by her dead relative. The final piece in the puzzle is Leonardo Da Vinci’s painting ‘The Madonna of the Rocks’, behind which they discover a key and an address…
Da Vinci painted two versions of the work – the second hangs in the National Gallery on Trafalgar Square in London. Langdon says that this is a second "watered-down" version of the original, supposedly offensive to the Catholic Church. Take a look for yourself and see what you make of it.
