Scottish farmhouse painting could be lost da Vinci

When cash-strapped Fiona McLaren took a family painting to an expert for evaluation, she was shocked to learn that the 23x28 inch (58x71 cm) piece might be an unknown work by Renaissance genius Leonardo da Vinci. (photo)

The painting of a woman holding a child, long displayed on the wall of their Scottish farmhouse, was received by Fiona's doctor father as payment in the 1960s and passed down to her by her mother. Experts are studying the work and believe that it may be genuine or a work from the da Vinci school.
