“Mystery of a Masterpiece”

Last week, I finally got around to watching an episode of NOVA that I recorded when it aired on January 25:  “Mystery of a Masterpiece.”  The story is amazing.  It traces efforts to prove that a newly (re)discovered drawing was done by Leonardo Da Vinci.

The video can also be seen here on the PBS website.

Martin Kemp, one of the scholars investigating the painting has written a book about the investigation:  Bella Principessa.  The owner of the painting, Peter Silverman, has also written a book:  Leonardo’s Lost Princess: One Man’s Quest to Authenticate an Unknown Portrait by Leonardo Da Vinci.
