Sketch made with charcoal, and allegedly written by da Vinci.
In France was discovered the sketch of a naked woman, which, presumably, could be a sketch for the painting “Mona Lisa”, reports Metro.
The publication reports that to date it has been assumed that the portrait of a woman known as “Monna the bath” was performed only in the Studio of the painter. Now scientists say that the artist himself could work on this painting.
It is argued that “at least part” of the outline belongs to the hand of the great Italian. Since 1892, this sketch was part of a collection of Renaissance art in the musée condé in the Palace of Chantilly.
The curator of the Museum, commenting on the find, says that the body and hands of the “Mona Lisa” and “Monna the Bath” are almost identical. In addition, both portraits are the same size.
