not one Ermine painting but three

Recent tests have proven that Leonardo painted three portraits to get to the famous, final Lady with the Ermine portrait. It changes how the art world thinks of Leonardo's portrait and painting technique. First she was painted with out the ermine in a red and black dress, then with a small, gray ermine and a blue sleeve was added, then, in the final version, she looks as we have known her. Fascinating. Guess this means lots of new academic discussions and papers as well as new text books for all the art 101 students.
