Dear Andrew Evans,

I have a drawing from the 1600's that I think
was made by Leonardo da vinci. Can you tell me
if I am correct? The drawing is on a 10"x14" paper.

Sincerely, Ivan

Answer
Dear Ivan,

I do not recognize this drawing. If it is truly a drawing by da Vinci, it is worth about $10,000,000. A smaller drawing of da Vinci's of a man riding a horse was sold at Christies London for just over $10 million.

If you would like to see if it is worth something, I recommend contacting Christies http://christies.com/ or Sothebys http://www.sothebys.com/ auction houses, as they are the two largest auction houses in the world. They may have an expert who recognizes this.

Best of luck to you.

Sincerely,

Andrew Evans
