Explorations, musings, and wonderings along the path of life

For the first time in 100 years, there is (possibly) a new Leonardo da Vinci painting in the world. Well, strictly speaking, it's an old da Vinci painting, but it's been attributed to an obscure German artist for the last 400 years or so. Now, new art forensic fingerprinting techniques have identified a print on the painting that matches to one on a known da Vinci work (St Jerome).
