Unknown 'da Vinci drawings' found
【BBCより以下、転載】
Previously unknown sketches have been discovered on the back of a Leonardo da Vinci painting in Paris that experts think may have been drawn by him.
The sketches, which were discovered by accident, feature a horse head, part of a skull and baby Jesus with a lamb.

The Louvre Museum discovered them on the back of The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne, which was painted on wood.

The sketches were discovered when the painting was taken down and the curator noticed two drawings on the back.

"This is an exceptional discovery because drawings on the back of paintings are very rare and no example by Leonardo was previously known," the Louvre said.

"The style of the drawings recalls the style of Leonardo, but research is ongoing to clarify their authorship."

Photographs taken with an infrared cameras discovered there were actually three drawings.

The museum said some staff members were at first unable to believe the marks were drawings, and thought they must be stains.
ルーブル美術館にある、レオナルド・ダ・ヴィンチの絵画「聖母子と聖アンナ」の裏に、馬の頭、頭蓋骨の一部、幼子イエスのスケッチが見つかったそうです。

ルーブル美術館のスタッフも当初は、それらのあとが絵画とは信じられず、シミだと思っていたそうです。現在、調査中らしいですが、興味深いですねぇ~。

こうしてみると、いろんなところにダ・ヴィンチの絵画が隠れていそうで楽しみですね♪(ワクワク)

ちなみにロイターもほとんど同じような内容で記事書いてますね。ニュース・ソースが同じなんでしょうね。
Sketches behind da Vinci painting may be Leonardo's

PARIS (Reuters) - A curator at the Louvre Museum in Paris has stumbled upon some unknown drawings on the back of a painting by Leonardo da Vinci that look like they might be by the Italian master himself, the Louvre said on Thursday.

The extraordinary find was made by chance, when Louvre staff unhooked Leonardo's "The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne" from the museum wall as part of a broad programme of study and restoration of paintings by Leonardo, including the "Mona Lisa."

"When the work, which is painted on wood, was unhooked, a curator noticed two barely visible drawings on the back of the painting, showing a horse's head and half a skull," the museum said.

It was such an astonishing discovery that other Louvre staff present at the time could not believe it and initially said the marks on the wood must be stains.

"The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne" was painted in the early 1500s and no one had previously noticed the drawings -- at least not to the knowledge of the Louvre.

After the initial find, the museum conducted detailed tests on the back of the painting. Photographs taken with an infrared camera revealed that there were not two but three drawings. The third one is of a Child Jesus playing with a lamb.

"This is an exceptional discovery because drawings on the back of paintings are very rare and no example by Leonardo was previously known," the Louvre said.

It said the drawings recalled some of Leonardo's known works and suggested that the child and lamb could have been sketches for the painting on the other side of the piece of wood.

"The style of the drawings recalls the style of Leonardo, but research is ongoing to clarify their authorship," it said.
