Leonardo da Vinci Ginevra de' Benci ; 1474 Oil on wood, 38.2 x 36.7 cm (15 1/8 x 14 1/2 in); National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC 레오나르도 다빈치의 초기작품으로 그의 대표적인 작품 모나리자와는 다른 느낌을 준다. 구도가 가슴부터 윗부분을 잡았기 때문에 약간 단조로운 느낌을 주고 있고 모나리자의 완벽한 구조와는 거리가 있어 보인다. 하지만 인물의 디테일을 표현하는 부분에서 회화 스킬은 높은 수준이라는 것을 알 수 있다. 이 그림의 뒤에는 종려와 월계수, 그리고 소나무가 그려져 있고 [아름다움은 덕을 장식한다.]라는 글씨가 작품 뒤쪽에 기록되어 있다. 이는 지네브라가 덕을 갖추고 아름다움을 지니고 있다는 것을 의미한 것이다.
