    Background: ART EXPERTS AT MODENA, IN NORTHERN ITALY, HAVE DISCOVERED A PAINTING WHICH THEY THINK IS THE WORK OF MICHELANGELO, AND ARE CONSULTING THE BRITISH MUSEUM IN LONDON ABOUT ITS AUTHENTICITY. THE PAINTING REPRESENTS CHRIST ON THE CROSS, WITH FOUR WOMEN AND SAINT NICODEMUS AT HIS FEET.

    SUPERINTENDENT OF THE MODENA ART GALLERIES SAID THE BRITISH MUSEUM WAS BEING CONSULTED BECAUSE THE MUSEUM HAD A DRAWING BY MICHELANGELO ON THE SAME SUBJECT. THE PICTURE MEASURES 19 BY 23 INCHES (49 BY 59 CM), IS ON WOOD AND BEARS THE DATE 1545 OR 1547, IT'S STATE OF PRESERVATION IS FAIR.

    THE PAINTING BELONGS TO A 60-YEAR-OLD PHYSICIAN, DR. GIUSEPPE MOREALI, WHO TOLD JOURNALISTS: "THIS PICTURE HAS BEEN IN MY HOME FOR 40 YEARS. I COULD NOT SAY IF IT WAS BOUGHT OR A GIFT, AS IT WAS MY FATHER NOT I WHO LOOKED AFTER THESE THINGS".
