Profile of a Young Fiancee

La Belle Princesse (Italian: La Bella Principessa) is a portrait attributed by several acknowledged experts to the Florentine painter Leonardo da Vinci, although this attribution remains disputed. It is a drawing in three pencils (black stone, white chalk and red chalk) and ink, produced on a small-format sheet of vellum (33 × 24 cm) mounted on an oak panel. The attribution to Leonardo da Vinci is not shared by the majority of experts, notably because in 1998 it was attributed to a 19th-century German artist belonging to the so-called Nazarenes group, a painter known in particular for having mocked the 15th-century Italian school. The drawing was offered for sale and sold for $21,850 to Kate Ganz, a New York gallery owner, who kept it without carrying out any specific research until it was bought back for $22,000 by Peter Silverman, a collector who had already spotted the drawing at the previous Christie's auction. It was Silverman who investigated the origin of the drawing, calling on the services of Lumière Technology, a private laboratory. Carbon-14 dating does not invalidate the hypothesis that it is a contemporary work by Leonardo da Vinci. In addition, Pascal Cotte, the scientific director of Lumière Technology, discovered on the portrait a papillary print by the Italian master, identical to the one that had already been found on the Saint Jerome, an unfinished work in the Vatican. More precisely, the print was declared "very comparable" by Canadian expert Paul Biro. [...]
