About

There is no piece of art in Poland more famous than this one. It is also hard to imagine a more well-known and talented artist in so many fields then Leonardo da Vinci. He is one of the 3 most popular painters in the world next to Rembrandt and Van Gogh.

Nevertheless, in his job application to the duke of Milan, he first mentioned his engineering skills and only at the end of it he wrote that he also can paint…

During his life he painted only about 20 paintings and 4 portraits. Because he was a great experimenter, in his painting as well many of his pieces are in very bad condition today. (For example “The Last Supper” was repainted every few decades so it is hard to say now how much of it is genuine Da Vinci).

“Lady with an Ermine” from the Czartoryski collection is one of the 4 of his portraits. His best-preserved painting and according to many specialists one of the greatest pieces of Leonardo. Which all together make it one of the greatest pieces of art of all time!


This will be a guided tour in the museum that hosts the most famous Polish collection, which in 2017 was bought by the Polish state for 500 mln PLN. Leonardo da Vinci painting itself cost at least 1.300 mln PLN, the price of the whole collection including buildings is estimated at about 10.000 mln PLN.


The Museum is now reopened after 9 years of thorough renovation. Our tour will focus on the history of the collection, the Czartoryski family and da Vinci painting itself.


You will meet your tour guide in the courtyard of the museum. He will provide tickets for each participant. Your guide will be Paweł Mrozowicz art lover and professional tour guide with 14 years of experience.
