After the completion of The Virgin with the Rocks, for the chapel San Francesco Grande, and that of the Equestrian Statue of Francesco Sforza, he found glory throughout Italy. The Last Supper, the ceiling of the Sforza Palace, the Mona Lisa and the Battle of Anghiari are a few of his great artworks.
