The lost etchings of Leonardo DaVinci...

The first draft of Leonardo's
"Self-Portrait as an Old Man"
Evidently, Leo went through several
preliminary versions of the drawing...
The original concept drawing for
DaVinci's most famous painting.
...he was beginning to get the tonal effects,
but apparently had a long way to go with

Historians were awestruck to discover new drawings by Leonardo DaVinci, which were previously thought to have been destroyed in the "Bonfire of the Vanities..."
