Another New daVinci?

A few months ago I posted about a recently come-to-light work by Leonardo daVinci.

Now comes news that there is possibly another new daVinci, and, it may be at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston!

This newly discovered work reminds me to mention that we have a library museum pass program. The program includes a pass to the MFA, which is donated to us by F.L.O.W. , our Friends group. To learn more about our pass program, click here.

I'm not saying that the new daVinci may not be real, but, there are some clever, but misguided, people who have forged works of art in the past. To read about some, look for Fakes and Forgeries: The True Crime Stories of History's Greatest Deceptions: The Criminals, the Scams, and the Victims, by Brian Innes [364.163 INN].
