(b. 1494, Pontormo, d. 1557, Firenze)

Leda and the Swan

Oil on wood, 55 x 40 cm
Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence

The work was already in the Tribune of the Uffizi in 1589, although without a precise attribution, which oscillated between Andrea del Sarto, Pontormo and Perin del Vaga. Even today the attribution is controversial; however, traditionally the work continues to be considered a youthful work by Pontormo, still influenced by Leonardo's style.
