While the film does NOT solve the mystery, it was really interesting., 24 May 2014
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

The description on IMDb isn't exactly right. While the show shows a lot of folks trying to establish the legitimacy of a painting, it is NOT really about finding frauds but about determining if one painting in particular is by Da Vinci or not.

In this case, a man has recently bought a painting for $22,000 at an auction in the hope that it could be proved to be by Da Vinci. The steps they need to do are fascinating--including establishing that the velum is indeed from the Da Vinci time period, that the painting is consistent with other known Da Vinci paintings, the handedness of the painter and possible fingerprints on the painting! It's all very detailed and interesting but I must warn you--the results are NOT yet conclusive. But, it is worth your time. My only reservation is the interview with the guy who copies other people's work--he wasn't very good and think this really wasn't necessary for the television episode.

Was the above review useful to you?
