La fabbrica dei "Leonardo" non si ferma mai, Leonardo non c'è bisognerà comunque inventarlo per la gioia dei tanti stra miliardari del nostro pianeta per i quali sborsare un miliardo di dollari per un dipinto equivale ai 5 euro che la gente comune sborsa per un pacchetto di sigarette.
Il problema vero è che se di sigarette se ne possono produrre quotidianamente numeri enormi, per Leonardo le cose cambiano, detto fra noi come pittore è forse stato il più svogliato di tutta la storia dell' arte, meno di venti dipinti di cui alcuni incompiuti.
A questo punto qualche apostolo di Cristo avrebbe detto: "ci vorrebbe la moltiplicazione dei pani e dei pesci", ma non pare sia il caso di scomodare addirittura Gesù Cristo che malgrado il proprio nome non ha a nulla a che fare con le case d' asta di Londra e di New York.

Maintenant que le « Salvator Mundi de Léonard de Vinci vient d'être vendu pour 450 millions de $ chez Christie à New York, alors que la clameur fane l'art le plus cher sur le travail jamais vendu aux enchères, au centre des » experts habituels " qui a déjà pris contact avec d'autres peintures de « Leonardo » encore entre les mains de collectionneurs privés, au mépris des deux Christie est ce que l'acheteur et inconnu du « Salvator Mundi » avec leur opinion simple peut transformer le « fer en or », qui il croyait naïvement avoir acheté « l « Last Leonardo » de l'histoire, quand il a peut-être seulement acheté l'avant-dernier tableau pour ne plus attribué d'une seule voix par les experts comme l'œuvre de Léonard de Vinci.
Selon les rumeurs qui ont paru hier sur un titre britannique célèbre, nous regardons déjà le prochain "Leonardo" pour apporter de futures ventes aux enchères.
Sur les trois ou quatre tableaux de Léonard encore en mains privées pour transpire maintenant que deux des « candidats » pour marquer 1 milliard $ serait deux tableaux de l'atelier que la Madonna dei Fusi (ou bobine) est une peinture à l'huile sur panneau...

Adesso che il "Salvator Mundi di Leonardo da Vinci è stato appena venduto per $ 450 milioni da Christie's a New York, mentre si attenua il clamore sull'opera d'arte più costosa mai venduta alle aste, l'attenzione dei "soliti esperti" che con un loro semplice parere riescono a trasformare il "ferro in oro", si è già rivolta su altri dipinti di "Leonardo" ancora in mano a collezionisti privati, in barba tanto a Christie's quanto ed allo sconosciuto acquirente del "Salvator Mundi" che ha ingenuamente creduto di aver acquistato "L' Ultimo Leonardo" della storia, quando invece ha acquistato forse solo il penultimo dipinto per di più non attribuito in maniera unanime dagli esperti quale opera di Leonardo da Vinci.
Secondo le indiscrezioni apparse ieri su una nota testata britannica già si guarda ai prossimi "Leonardo" da portare in future aste.
Dei tre o quattro dipinti di Leonardo ancora in mani private per ora trapela che due dei "candidati" a totalizzare 1 miliardo di dollari sarebbero due dipinti della bottega ossia La Madonna dei Fusi (o dell'Aspo) è un dipinto a olio su tavola trasferito su tela e incollato su tavola (50,2x36,4 cm) attribuito a Leonardo da Vinci...

Dated April 1471, this priceless hitherto unknown masterpiece by Leonardo da Vinci, depicting the Archangel Gabriel, is not only the first painting by the Tuscan genius, it also features his very first autograph signature, written from left to right and “imprisoned” in a “PICTURE THAT WILL LAST ALMOST FOR EVER”, discovered by Dr. Ivana R. Bonfantino, Consultant Graphologist and former Professor of Comparative Graphology and History of Graphology at Rome’s LUMSA University; in fact, the only known signature of Leonardo, to date, was the one he affixed to the contract of commission for the Virgin of the Rocks, dated 25 April 1483 and discovered in October 2011 at the State Archives of Milan.
This work of art, made by Leonardo da Vinci to demonstrate the superiority of painting over sculpture, features the use of glazed paint, a technique described by the painter in his Treatise on Painting in the chapter titled "How to paint a Picture that will last almost for ever: Another method, which may be better, is, instead of the priming of pitch and brickdust, take a flat tile well vitrified, then apply the coat of white and Naples yellow, and all the rest as before.

Manuel Sanchez was born in Cordoba, Spain grew up in the United States and returned to Spain where he resides presently.. He began drawing and oil painting at a very young age and has been an artist ever since. Over the past 40 years, when Manuel wasn’t painting in his spare time, he was traveling the world as a professional flamenco dancer. In fact, it was through his international dance contracts that he became a professional painter because it gave him the opportunity to sell his artwork wherever he went. While he has recently retired as a dancer, he recalls how he enjoyed every minute of his experiences and is the type of person that loves to live life with passion, love and improvisation. Presently, Sanchez continues to express his love for art on canvas by mostly painting wild animals, portraits and of course Spanish themes like Flamenco, bullfighting and the wild Spanish bull. Manuel admits he is a hard worker and will not sign a painting until his heart and soul tells him its finished. Like his dancing, his paintings are filled with love, fire, passion, and feeling.

This is reproduced verbatim from the ABC news website (ABC.net.au). The author is AM Europe Correspondent Rachael Brown with ABC staff.

[i] 'The authors of a new biography of Vincent Van Gogh claim the artist died after being accidentally shot, and did not kill himself as is commonly thought.

Van Gogh: The Life claims the impressionist painter was shot accidentally by teenage brothers with a malfunctioning gun at a farm in Auvers-sur-Oise in France.

One of the authors, Steven Naifeh, says Van Gogh was grateful for his approaching death and decided to take the blame himself, protecting the teenagers and casting himself as a martyr.

Van Gogh, who suffered from depression, cut off part of an ear, and committed himself to an asylum, is widely believed to have ended his own life at age 37. He died in 1890, two days after suffering a gunshot wound to his chest. It has been believed that he shot himself with a revolver.

Co-author Gregory White Smith says letters written by the painter contain no hints he was considering suicide before his death.

I recently found out that the Mona Lisa is a work in progress that will never be finished. I found this shocking! How could the most beautiful painting I've ever seen be unfinished? I investagated, and I fond out that Leonardo Da Vinchi's model died before he was finished, so he estimated some proportions, then he was adding more and more detail. But, he never finished his masterpiece. He died befor he could finish. I don't see how he wasn't done, but maybe you readers could find something unfinished? I need your help! since i can barely see through my glesses, can you look thouroughly? Maybe you'll see somehting my eyes overlooked, like an undone line, or an unfinished color? Maybe someone will solve the mystery, maybe it will forever remain a mystery! no on knows!
