Priceless Leonardo destroyed by restorers
The Art Newspaper | Submitted by: Soylent
"In an article in Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, Professor Pedretti expressed his amazement that restorers had not carried out tests before submerging the picture, particularly given the delicate nature of the vegetable inks Leonardo had used. He cited two other recent cases where damage has been done to Leonardo drawings by botched cleaning efforts."
