Talk About Your Asset


The ghost of a fingerprint in the top left corner of an obscure portrait appears to have confirmed an extraordinary art discovery: an unrecognized painting by Leonardo da Vinci.

…The 13 x 9in picture in chalk, pen and ink appeared at auction at Christie’s, New York, in 1998, catalogued as “German school, early 19th century.” It sold for $19,000. Now a growing number of leading art experts agree that it is almost certainly by Leonardo da Vinci and worth about $157 million.

    I don’t think that’s a Da Vinci,
    he rarely painted figures from a total profile view.
    Sounds like a well conceived
    scam by the Europeans freaks again. Like the tomb of Jesus
    found a few years ago.

    Da Vinci did do drawings from a total profile,but mostly men.
    Women, he usually showed more of their essence.I’m no expert, but I’m highly suspicious of such a far-fetched find.However,
    I’m just a blogger and I’ll
    leave it at that..
