Art experts find possible new da Vinci

AP | ROB GILLIES | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

TORONTO — Art experts believe they have identified a new Leonardo da Vinci – in part by examining a fingerprint on the canvas.

Peter Paul Biro, a Montreal-based forensic art expert, said Tuesday a fingerprint on what was presumed to be a 19th-century German painting of a young woman has convinced art experts that it's actually a da Vinci.

Biro said Canadian-born art collector Peter Silverman bought "La Bella Principessa" at auction in 1997 for about $19,000. One London art dealer now says it's worth over $150 million.

If experts are correct, it will be the first major work by da Vinci to be identified in 100 years.

Biro said the print of an index or middle finger was found on the painting and that it matched a fingerprint from da Vinci's St Jerome in the Vatican. Biro examined 3-D images of the painting taken by the Luminere Technology laboratory in Paris. The lab used a special 3-D digital scanner to show successive layers of the work.

2010 Tour de France to climax in the Pyrenees

AP | SAMUEL PETREQUIN | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

PARIS — The next chapter in the rivalry between seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong and defending champion Alberto Contador will take place in a majestic landscape next July – the Pyrenees.

Riders of the most prestigious three-week cycling race will celebrate the first crossing of the Pyrenees 100 years ago with as many as four stages in the daunting mountains that form the border between France and Spain.

Tour organizers unveiled the 2010 course on Wednesday, with Armstrong and Contador attending the ceremony in Paris. The pair worked together as Astana teammates during this year's race, and the Spaniard won the Tour for a second time while Armstrong finished third.

The 38-year-old Armstrong has since left the Kazakh-funded team to launch his own outfit, RadioShack, which has yet to be granted a ProTour license.

In 1910, Tour riders climbed the four legendary Pyrenean passes – Peyresourde, Aspin, Tourmalet and Aubisque – a feat their modern heirs will repeat next July. The Tourmalet, one of the toughest climbs in cycling, will be scaled twice.
