Leonardo fingerprint reveals $150 million artwork

AP | ROB GILLIES | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

TORONTO — Mona Lisa has something new to smile about.

A portrait of a young woman thought to be created by a 19th century German artist and sold two years ago for about $19,000 is now being attributed by art experts to Leonardo da Vinci and valued at more than $150 million.

The unsigned chalk, ink and pencil drawing, known as "La Bella Principessa," was matched to Leonardo via a technique more suited to a crime lab than an art studio – a fingerprint and palm print found on the 13 1/2-inch-by-10-inch work.

Peter Paul Biro, a Montreal-based forensic art expert, said the print of an index or middle finger matched a fingerprint found on Leonardo's "St. Jerome" in the Vatican.

Technical, stylistic and material composition evidence – including carbon dating – had art experts believing as early as last year that they had found another work by the creator of the "Mona Lisa."

Hitachi to pay $10M for some Nortel network assets

AP | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

SAN FRANCISCO — Nortel Networks Corp. said Monday it agreed to sell some of its next-generation packet core network components to Hitachi Ltd. for $10 million.

Under the deal's terms, Hitachi will get assets including software that can be used to transfer data over existing wireless networks and the next generation of wireless communications technology, Nortel said. This includes related non-patent intellectual property, equipment and other assets, and a non-exclusive license for the use of some related patents and intellectual property.

The deal still must be approved by a Delaware bankruptcy court, along with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. It is expected to be completed this year.

Nortel, formerly a telecommunications equipment giant, filed for bankruptcy protection in Canada and the U.S. in January. The Toronto-based company has since been selling its operations piece by piece.

The deal was made by Nortel's main operating subsidiary, Nortel Networks Ltd., and its Nortel Networks Inc. subsidiary.
