  • Description

    A LONG-LOST DA VINCI MASTERPIECE - CHRIST AMONG THE DOCTORS - HAS BEEN DISCOVERED IN NEW YORK CITY, IN THE COLLECTION OF MR. AND MRS ROBERT GREGORY. THE GREGORY'S ARE NEW YORK ART DEALERS AND THE PAINTING IS NOW ON DISPLAY AT THEIR GALLERY. THEY ESTIMATE ITS WORTH AT OVER TWO-AND-ONE-HALF MILLION DOLLARS.

    THE PAINTING WAS COMPLETED ABOUT 1507, HAVING BEEN COMMISSIONED BY ISABELLA D'ESTE, MARCHIONESS OF MANTUA. SHE NEVER RECEIVED IT, HOWEVER. IT WENT INSTEAD TO A FRENCH COLLECTOR, AND WAS LISTED AS LOST. IT REMAINED IN VARIOUS EUROPEAN AND ENGLISH COLLECTIONS UNTIL 1929. IN THAT YEAR, IT WAS SOLD AT CHRISTIE'S IN LONDON, BEARING THE NAME PLATE "CHRIST DISPUTING WITH THE ELDERS" AND ATTRIBUTED TO BERNARDO LUINI.
