Decadeslong search finds 14 living descendants of Leonardo da Vinci

Recently, researchers have found and recognized 14 living relatives of Leonardo da Vinci, and one of them was born in 2020. The family members are living normal lives

A 10-year investigation into the origins of the da Vinci family was carried out by Alessandro Vezzosi and Agnese Sabato. Their latest project tracked down 21 generations of the artist’s family, whose male line is dating back almost 700 years.

Researchers received both public and private information about the surviving heirs. Through the study, the scientists hope to better understand the artist and architect’s extraordinary talents. Experts assume that da Vinci’s genius is based on a combination of genetic traits and learning.

Meanwhile, da Vinci’s small painting of a bear’s head will appear at auction. The drawing was applied with a silver needle on pale paper. The work of art, which has more than 500 years of history, is expected to be sold for 16.7 million dollars during today’s auction. The event will be held in London. Sales can beat the previous record set in 2001 for the Horse and Rider drawing.
