This is a newly authenticated Leonardo sketch. It's called "La Bella Principessa" and is supposedly of a 13 yo Bianca Sforza - daughter of the Duke of Milan. I think the sketch is by Leonardo or based off of a Lost Leonardo - but it has either been preserved remarkably well or someone else seems to have restored or enhanced the colors. Its one of the only Leo sketches that has been colored. Although since it was for a Sforza he may have spent more time and effort. Either way it's surprisingly preserved for being over 500 years old!
