Rome, June 21 - Two Italian art experts said
Thursday that a 1471 depiction of the Archangel Gabriel is the
oldest surviving work of Leonardo Da Vinci.
Experts Ernesto Solari and Ivana Rosa Bonfantino said the
artwork on terracotta is the first piece he signed and his first
self-portrait too.
The scholars said they based their findings on three years of
study in which they examined 6,000 documents.
The work is owned by the heirs of Italian noble family.
Solari said that it was given to Joanna of Aragon in 1499,
perhaps a gift from Leonardo himself.
A copy of the artwork will be on show as off Friday at the
Leonardo da Vinci Experience in Rome.
