Discovering Leonardo

Produced by

Art restorer Dianne Dwyer Modestini tells Dick the story of getting a damaged and layered painting from an art dealer. As she began to clean it, she was impressed with the artist’s fine work. Layer by layer, she uncovered the full image of "Salvatore Mundi" until one evening she knew in her gut that it was actually an undiscovered painting by Leonardo da Vinci.
