One major noticeable artwork found in this museum is the Virgin of Rocks, sometimes called Madonna of the Rocks. This painting of art was done by Leonardo da Vinci. This artwork was made using a medium of oil on panel and measures about 190 cm by length and about 121cm wide ( Blatt, 2018). Leonardo da Vinci was the one who did the work between around the years 1494 and 1506 and largely originated from the painting worked on a wooden panel ( Blatt, 2018). The art features three characters, including the Baby Jesus, John the Baptist, Madonna, and an angel from a scene with rocky settings ( Blatt, 2018). The art subject can get concluded from the idea that Baby Jesus is being adored by John the Baptist. Through the works, Leonardo made tremendous contributions socially in then culture as the altarpiece stood in a chapel devoted to the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary ( Blatt, 2018).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
