What was once believed to be a mere copy, has been declared as an original masterpiece by famed Renaissance master Sandro Botticelli. The painting was discovered after cleaning, revealing both its quality and colours. Everything was hidden beneath layers of old varnish. The painting is an original piece created by the artist's workshop in the 15th century. English Heritage confirmed that the Madonna of the Pomegranate was by Botticelli.
