Study solved by Carlsen.

I was taking a look at 2700chess when I saw this position and the following text:
Magnus Øen Carlsen wrote:I solved this study. Can you? White to move and draw (seen from black's side)
[d]8/k5p1/2Pb4/8/7p/4K3/3B4/8 w - - 0 1

I hope I have set up the correct position.

I tried some top engines for some minutes and all of them gave losing scores to white side (however, I did not checked the full mainlines).

So the question is: can your engines solve this study?

Sorry for the name of the topic, but I have not found the name and/or date of the composer. Can somebody give this info? Thanks in advance.

Regards from Spain.
