“LONDON (Reuters) – A unique portrait by Italian Old Master Titian, painted over and rediscovered more than 400 years later, is expected to make more than 9 million dollars when it is sold at auction in December.
Revealed by X-rays and painstakingly restored, Titian’s Portrait of a Lady and her Daughter was unfinished when the Renaissance master died in 1576 and painted over with Tobias and the Angel, probably by one of Titian’s pupils, Leonardo Corona.”
