Rare 500 year old Leonardo da Vinci painting located in Swiss Bank vault.

Rare 500 year old Leonardo da Vinci painting  located in Swiss Bank vault. | GoGo Social - Good Business? | Scoop.it

Authenticity has been confirmed for a rare and thought lost Leonardo da Vinci Painting that was recently located in a Swiss Bank Vault

 

Researchers in Italy claim to have unearthed the portrait of a noblewoman by Leonardo da Vinci which has been lost for about 500 years and features the same enigmatic smile as the Artist's Mona Lisa.

 

The portrait of Isabella d'Este, which carbon dating suggests was painted around the start of the 16th century, has been found in a vault in a private collection in Switzerland, and has been verified by a leading authority on the renaissance polymath.

 

The 20 x 16 inch portrait uses the same pigment and primer Leonardo used in the Mona Lisa, and is thought to be the completed version of a sketch he made of D'Este, which, like the Mona Lisa, hangs in the Louvre  Musée du Louvre, Paris, France.

 

The unnamed family which owns the portrait, and asked for it to be analysed, has kept a collection of about 400 paintings in Turgi since the start of the 20th century, according to the Corriere della Sera newspaper.

This rare Leonardo da Vinci painting is one of less than two dozen by the Italian Renaissance Artist and uses identical pigments to also found in da Vinci's Mona-Lisa masterpiece, Collection Musée du Louvre, Paris, France.

 

The newly discovered da Vinci is a portrait of Isabella d'Este, a   Renaissance patron of the Arts, and a leading Italian figure whose dress sense influenced women in Italy and France.

 

She sat for da Vinci and later implored him in a series of letters to turn his sketch, now in the Collection Musée du Louvre, Paris, into a Painting.

Beth Kanter's comment, September 29, 2013 2:40 PM
The tools section is pretty lame - weird categories. Obviously, they didn't review the experts, like Robin Good, and refer to his work.

Infographic: 13% of social media users are identity theft victims | GoGo Social - Good Business? | Scoop.it

The tension between the monetization of social networks and people’s desire for privacy is something that doesn’t show any signs of resolving. The most valuable thing that social networks have is your information, and this infographic does a good job of vetting out where your information is and how vulnerable we all are because of it.

Identity theft!

Randy Hilarski's curator insight, September 24, 2013 1:59 PM

Be careful what you post on social media. Public means public people!

Iron Dane Richards's comment, September 26, 2013 10:12 AM
Its a shame that we have so much internet identity theft in this digital age. One solution I highly recommend to many of our clients is the use of prepaid debit cards in order to minimize potential loss with like a Walmart, Netspend or Bancorp Prepaid Visa or Mastercard for online purchases and link that even further through a paypal debit card. Our website has links to business cards also http://ironsolutionsgroup.com/business-credit-cards/
