"Art detective" searches for lost Da Vinci painting

Self-professed "art detective" Maurizio Seracini, an expert on Leonard da Vinci's lost painting The Battle of Anghiari, has been given funds to continue his 30-year quest for the painting.

The 60-foot-wide fresco was commissioned in 1504 and executed at Florence's Palazzo Vecchio but may not have survived the ravages of rain and poor materials, although cartoons used for the painting have survived. The Battle of Anghiari was considered da Vinci's greatest painting by his contemporaries. Seracini believes the painting still exists and continues his search for it.
