Leonardo Seized

Swiss authorities have seized this painting Ritratto di Isabella d'Este, allegedly by Leonardo da Vinci, from a private bank vault prior to its sale for $135 million. It will be sent to Italy, where police will seek to establish its ownership and determine whether it was removed from Italy without authorisation. Art historians will get the chance to put it under the microscope to find out if it is the real deal or not (CLICK). I must say the woman's hand doesn't look like the work of a master who had studied anatomy.
