Regarding this ("Were Leonardo Da Vinci's Paintings Actually Prints? Renaissance Masterpieces Sfumato Alchemy") very video of our dear Sylvie, I wanted to point out a little detail that I hope she can read:

In the minute 19:39 of the narration, she shows and reads a text about art conservators removing bores from the paintings in the last 30 years or so. She did read "borders".

The word "bore" means a perforation, puncture, pierce, punch, or drill hole. And this is what they do in order to examine a minuscule cross section of a painting so that they can study it through high magnification to learn the layers, materials, etc.

The text also mentions the aforementioned technique would not be useful to study DaVinci's paints because of the type of low pigment washes he used, and that no one would ever let a bore of pigment be removed from the face of a DaVinci figure.

Thank you,
