Hi Derek,
            Thanks for your reply,
Sorry I have not replied quicker, been busy today.
I will be straight with you and hope you may be able to help. I have the opportunity to sell this painting for the owners. The painting as you have correctly indicated is not recognised to be the work of Da Vinci. Even though the letter of authenticity states that it is. I have been in touch with  a gallery in London, England where I live and they have approached someone you would have heard of ,  Mr Martin Kemp.  When the gallery approached him he confirmed to them that in his opinion the Portrait Of Salai was not painted by Da Vinci.
As you have stated on your Blog, this is all a matter of opinion and thats what i believe.
The painting must have a value and be of interest to someone. The Bank in Geneva has it insured currently for   120 Million Euros. There must be a buyer out there.
If you feel you can find a buyer, or create some further interest that would be great as we can all earn some money.
I can fly the current owner to meet any potential purchaser at the Bank in Geneva so they can be assured that there is no underhand fake stuff going on. At the same time they can carry out their own expertise on the painting and be assured it’s the real deal.

Please feel free to call me at anytime.
Best Regards
