As previously reported, in the British Royal collection has discovered an unknown lifetime portrait of Leonardo da Vinci.

The pattern noticed on the paper with preparatory sketches for the monument, commissioned by the king of France. Experts believe that its author could be one of the assistants of the artist. He probably painted it shortly before the death of da Vinci in 1519.

The portrait was acquired for the Royal collection by king Charles II, who ruled England in the seventeenth century. In 1968 historian Kenneth Clark, who formed the catalogue for the first time noted the similarity of a bearded man in the picture with Leonardo da Vinci. Despite this, work on 51 returned to the archive, stored in Windsor castle.

In the preparation of the exhibition dedicated to the 500th anniversary of the death of da Vinci curator Martin Clayton once again drew attention to the picture. He concluded that it really shows da Vinci. According to him, lush and well-groomed beard worn by the artist, was considered unusual decoration in Western Europe at that time.

The portrait will be first shown to the public during the exhibition at Buckingham Palace.

Before they were known for only one lifetime portrait of Leonardo da Vinci, drawn by his pupil Francesco Melzi. It is also stored in the Royal collection.

Recall that a picture of the legendary artist pulled from the bottom of the Black sea: “sank 100 years ago.”

As reported Politeka, a picture of the legendary Ukrainian kidnapped in Russia: “Get out of the frame in front of everyone”.

Politeka also wrote that the gift of speech returned to the owner a cut of the painting by Banksy: what happened immediately after purchase.
