Yale Finds Velazquez Painting

A dusty, damaged canvas discovered in the basement art collection of Yale University has been identified as a work from 17th century Spanish painter Diego Velazquez. The painting is supposed to have been painted when Velazquez was 18, and dates to 1617. The piece was originally found six years ago, but Yale officials waited until tests could verify the painting was a Velazquez. Via CBC.
