Painting in Yale storage by Velazquez?

A painting was discovered in Yale University’s museum storage that may be by Velazquez.  Former curator John Marciari has been arguing for the attribution and is supported by museum director Laurence Kanter.   The Education of the Virgin is believed to have been painted for an altarpiece c. 1617.  The painting was donated to the museum in the 1920s.

At 5 x 4 feet, it’s hard to know how it stayed hidden for so long.  Read the LA Times article here.
