Missing DaVinci Painting Found After Centuries

Experts in the United States and Europe have examined a painting believed to have been created byLeonardo DaVinci and declared it original.


Painted on a wood panel, the work had been cleaned and refreshed over the years by amateurs using techniques that may have harmed the work of art. As a result, it was heavily overpainted and gloomy.

The current owners of the painting, a consortium that took a chance on its authenticity, recently turned down a $100 Million offer, hoping to auction it later for $200 Million or more.
