Grazia Leonardo called Leonardo da Pistoia
(Pistoia 1503 - Naples post 1548)
Attributed first to Giulio Romano, then to Peruzzi, albeit with several dissenting opinions, and finally to Leonardo da Pistoia, the painting portrays a Venus Anadyomene with tender, subtly melancholy face and a shapely, smooth body highlighted against a dark background.
