1. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2019/aug/14/abandoned-sketch-discovered-under-landmark-leonardo-da-vinci-work) reduced by 86%. (I’m a bot)
    > An "Abandoned composition" by Leonardo da Vinci has been discovered underneath one of his most discussed paintings, which will take centre stage at a ground-breaking exhibition dedicated to the Renaissance master.

    > "Handprints resulting from patting down the priming on the panel to create an even layer of more or less uniform thickness can also be seen, probably the work of an assistant – but perhaps even by Leonardo himself.”

    > In May this year, a sketch of a bearded man – found in among the Leonardo drawings contained in the Royal Collection – was identified as a work by the painter.
