The painting is called the Buccleuch Madona after its owner, the Duke of Buccleuch. It is on long-term loan from the Duke of Buccleuch's collection.
The painting was executed by the workshop, however, Leonardo is thought to have taken part in producing this version of the Madonna with the Yarnwinder, a fact suggested primarily by the rock in the foreground and the boys face. Martin Kemp even considers this panel to be a version produced immediately after the commission of 1501.
