Leonardo renovation attacked

Paris - A French art historian claimed Italian restorers had stripped away so much from Leonardo da Vinci's "Last Supper" that they turned his masterpiece into a ghostly image more like a modern painting. Jacques Franck said the team restoring the mural in a Milan church had stripped away all the repaints added since Leonardo painted the work, taking no account of their crucial role in preserving the original.
