Oxford don claims to discover new Da Vinci

first_imgAn Oxford art historian is now “confident” that a portrait dismissed as an insignificant 19th century German piece was in fact drawn by Leonardo Da Vinci, in light of new evidence which emerged last week. A new Da Vinci has not been discovered for over a century.Emeritus Professor Martin Kemp‘s book La Bella Principessa, which first outlined the claim, was published eighteen months ago. The initial argument relied on a host of scientific evidence, using techniques such as multispectral analysis. This seemed to show that the vellum the picture was drawn on was far older than the 19th century. It also found a fragment of a fingerprint which appeared to match up with that on another Da Vinci piece.Now a 15th century book has been found in Poland from which the drawing was allegedly removed.The vellum of the portrait appears to match that of the book and the three stitch holes in the margin of the piece also seem to correspond with it.The book had been produced to celebrate the marriage of Bianca Sforza to Galeazzo Sansverino in 1496.This would mean that the picture is of a young Sforza, eldest daughter of the Duke of Milan, who would have been about thirteen years old at the time.However not all the art world is convinced, with the National Gallery declaring there is “no general agreement” that it is a lost Da Vinci.Some art historians, particularly those who favour connoisseurship over sometimes unreliable technical analysis, claim the style simply is not that of Da Vinci, as well as noting that he produced no other art on vellum.The piece was originally sold at auction in New York in 1998 for $21,850 as ‘Head of a Young Girl in Profile to the Left in Renaissance Dress’.If it is in fact a lost Da Vinci it could now be worth a nine figure sum.An Oxford art historian is now “confident” that a portrait dismissed as an insignificant 19th century German piece was in fact drawn by Leonardo Da Vinci, in light of new evidence which emerged last week. A new Da Vinci has not been discovered for over a century.Emeritus Professor Martin Kemp‘s book La Bella Principessa, which first outlined the claim, was published eighteen months ago. The initial argument relied on a host of scientific evidence, using techniques such as multispectral analysis.

Singer Brian Johnson May Return To AC/DC After All

first_imgEarlier this year, longtime AC/DC fans were disappointed to hear that frontman Brian Johnson would no longer be able to tour with the band, else he would risk full hearing loss. Johnson has been performing with the band since 1980, and his absence forced the band to immediately postpone a number of scheduled dates. Not wanting to let down fans entirely, the band recruited Guns N’ Roses man Axl Rose for the role, and the Axl/DC experiment has raged on through Europe before an upcoming trip to the States.For AC/DC loyalists, the absence of Johnson has taken some getting used to. It seems, however, that Johnson may be making his grand return with AC/DC after all.According to a Rolling Stone report, Brian Johnson recently met with an in-ear technology specialist named Stephen Ambrose, who set up the singer with a new ADEL hearing technology. “It just totally works and you can’t argue with that. I was really moved and amazed to be able to hear music again like I haven’t heard for several years now. I can’t wait for it to be miniaturized so I can use it in every situation from normal communication, going out to noisy restaurants, [and] performing live music onstage.”The meeting with Johnson and Ambrose started with a YouTube video, where Ambrose and his 64 Audio team created a clip after learning of Johnson’s hearing troubles. You can watch the video below.We’ll keep our fingers crossed for an AC/DC with Brian Johnson, though Axl Rose might not be too happy about that, as he recently expressed interest in continuing his role with the band. However, with AC/DC and Guns N’ Roses both touring in 2016, it seems both Brian Johnson and Axl Rose will still have work to do in the live music scene.last_img read more
