the Da Vinci's Paint "Virgin of the Rocks"

According to the National Gallery museum manager in London, England, Wednesday, July 14, 2010. The museum is deploying a team to restore the painting Virgin of the Rocks, which took over 18 months.

Restoration that include cleaning the lacquer coating on paintings whose quality has been much reduced since last renovated in the late 1940s so as to make the painting look blurry.

Cleaning the old varnish allows the experts to look more closely at the original scratches da Vinci through the brush. Cleaning revealed da Vinci's painting style, especially in those parts of the dark. It gives the impression that da Vinci made the scratches are typical in the picture rocks.

Restoration was also asserted that da Vinci's painting apparently was alone and deliberately make it not finished.

Restoration project hand sketch shows the ex-angel in the picture until the image is the head of the main characters in the painting. This is consistent with the works of da Vinci's another.

Known as the "true perfectionist," da Vinci painting was allegedly left in a state of unfinished because at that time he hopes to finish it at another time. So said museum spokesman, Thomas Almeroth-Williams.

In the past, scholars believe that the da Vinci assisted by a number of assistant while working on the Virgin of the Rocks. This is based on the assumption of strokes that look different.

The painting was probably done between 1491 until 1508. In 2005, using infrared technology, the experts found two forms of sketches hidden beneath the surface of the painting. The form that one is never painted, while others reveal that da Vinci has repeatedly changed his mind on the subject that he wants a picture.

Once restored, the painting back on display since last Wednesday at the National Gallery. (Associated Press)
