The Lost Leonardo

National Geographic has a wonderful article on what is believed to be a long-lost Leonardo da Vinci painting.  It is a beautiful piece, with a sorrowful story.

Apparently also by Leonardo.
Killed at Pavia. Not exactly sure what side he was on, though.

Looks like he was on the French side, and a close friend of the king. See page 11, footnote 39.

I guess he must have left the service of the Sforzas at somepoint.

Some of those guys changed sides more often than some people change underwear.
