Leonardo da Vinci may have suffered traumatic nerve damage that left him with a 'claw hand', impairing his ability to paint in later life, a new study said. The damage could have been the result of a fainting episode, according to Italian research published Friday in the British Royal Society of Medicine journal. Reconstructive surgeon David Lazzeri and neurologist Carlo Rossi said the handicap prevented the Renaissance artist from even holding his palette in his right hand, though he continued to draw with his left.
