According to reports, two French art experts have quit The Louvre's optional committee in a row over the reinstatement of a Leonardo da Vinci picture. It is understood the return of the Leonardo painting has divided the gallery's international advisory committee between those who believe the painting is now too bright and those who gaze at the cleaning as reasonable.
Burgeon Langle, who is regarded as the country's national authority on restoring paintings, was once director of protection for all of France's national museums. Cuzin, the Louvre's former head of paintings, declined to remark beyond confirming his acknowledgment. They argue it has left the job with a brightness the artist never planned.
