    Background: A fresco which has just been discovered in a church in Milan, Italy, is believed to be a forgotten work by the Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci. The fresco occupies part of the ceiling in the church Santa Maria della Grazie. It was discovered during restoration of the building. church officials and art historians say the abstract geometrical pattern of the fresco is typical of the artist. In addition, records show da Vinci was working in the church at the time the fresco was completed. The church itself was built between 1466 and 1490 -- during the artist's lifetime -- and another work in the church is definitely by da Vinci: his mural The Last Supper. This is being restored along with the rest of the church.
