‘Mona Lisa nude sketch’ found in France

A charcoal drawing housed in another art collection for more than 150 years may have been a sketch for the Mona Lisa, a French art expert says.

The charcoal portrait of a nude woman, known as the Monna Vanna, was previously attributed only to Leonardo da Vinci’s studio.

But experts have found enough clues to suggest the artist worked on both.

LEONARDO DA VINCI’S ‘THE ADORATION OF THE MAGI’ BACK AT THE UFFIZI GALLERY

davinci1

After six years of restoration and inspection, Leonardo da Vinci’s The Adoration of the Magi is back at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

Leonardo was commissioned to paint the “The Adoration of the Magi” in 1481 by the Austin Friars but stopped painting after a preliminary study upon leaving for Milan in 1491. Another altarpiece depicting the Adoration of the Magi was commissioned from Filippino Lippi and completed in 1496, while Leonardo’s work found a home in the palazzo of the Benci family in Florence, later joining the Medici family’s collections.

At 246 x 243 cm, the work is the Uffizi’s largest panel painting by the artist.
