WWLS? (What would Leonardo say?)

Two French art experts have quit The Louvre’s advisory committee in a row over the restoration of a Leonardo da Vinci painting, according to reports.

Segolene Bergeon Langle and Jean-Pierre Cuzin resigned in protest over the cleaning of The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne, The Guardian said.

The pair claim the Paris gallery has over-cleaned the 500-year-old masterpiece.

They argue it has left the work with a brightness the artist never intended.
