Scientists May Have Identified the Secret Ingredient in da Vinci's Paintings

A new study suggests that Old Masters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt, and Sandro Botticelli may have intentionally used proteins, particularly egg yolk, in their oil paintings. In the study, researchers recreated the paint-making process by combining four ingredients: egg yolk, distilled water, linseed oil, and pigment. They found that adding egg yolk to oil paint has a drastic effect on the properties of the paint, making it resistant to aging and humidity. This could explain why some Old Masters' paintings are still in good condition today.
