The Da Vinci Portrait
A while ago I bought a Leonardo Da Vinci print at IKEA that looked very much like the painting of Danielle in Ever After, so I did some research on it. I don't know why, but I was suprised to find that the painting of Danielle in the movie is based on a real Da Vinci painting! The movie folks made it look more like Drew, but compare it to these real Da Vinci sketches:
Here are Leonardo's:
The site says, "It is a fascinating face, slightly spoilt by a badly painted eye. The faintly accentuated hair manages to give the idea of the breeze that agitates it. We wanted to show a study for the lost painting of the Leda, of which many preperatory drawings were made, but the meditative character is more typical of a Madonna rather than a profane figure. It was still Pedretti who lamented the exclusion of this portrait from the Leonardo catalogue by many scholars: "Perhaps, in all his earthly thinness, this is the most sublime of Leonardo's works, more sublime than the Mona Lisa or The Last Supper, a work that was conceived to live out of time and space."
Here are others that are very close:
You can see some of these sketches on this page.
