Newly discovered Leonardo da Vinci portrait in exhibition

This previously undiscovered self-portrait of Leonardo da Vinci has been found and is now on display in Rome at the Santa Maria del Popolo basilica.
The Da Vinci self-portrait, exhibited for the first time, shows the fascination with the artist and engineer is not failing, though the drawing has been the subject of some debate among experts.

The potrait, oil on board, has been restored by the medieval studio of Nicola Barbatelli at Acerenza in Basilicata, and will be added to the exhibition in Rome that include over 50 models of Da Vinci’s machines.
After the exhibition closes in Rome on August 31, the newly exhibited artwork will then tour internationally, displaying the Da Vinci portrait in places such as the Hermitage in St Petersburg.
