Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 03/05/2019 - 18:32
A nude drawing that bears a striking resemblance to the "Mona Lisa" was done in Leonardo da Vinci's studio and may be the work of the master himself, a French museum said Monday. Experts at the Louvre in Paris, where the world's biggest collection of Leonardo's work is held, have been examining a charcoal drawing known as the "Monna Vanna" which has long been attributed to the Renaissance painter's studio. But the charcoal preparatory work for a painting of a semi-nude woman, held at the Conde Museum at Chantilly north of Paris, may now have to be reclassified.

The two pro prospects from rival colleges in Mississippi left the NFL's annual scouting combine as the two biggest winners of the weeklong event. They were impressive. Following Metcalf's performance in the 40-yard dash, the New York Jets' official Twitter account posted: "4.33? At that size?" The comment could tip off the Jets' plans for the No. 3 pick in April's NFL draft, considering quarterback Sam Darnold will be entering his second season in the league this fall. And who could blame them for ...

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 03/05/2019 - 17:55
Hozier, "Wasteland, Baby!" (Columbia) For proof that Irish singer-songwriter Hozier has hit the big time, look no further than who he's singing with these days: Mavis Staples and Booker T. Jones.

It's nourishing and substantive, a reminder that enduring music is possible in 2019. Hozier --- born Andrew Hozier-Byrne --- emerg...
