You know, I keep looking around my house, and I NEVER find stuff like this stowed away somewhere!

The discovery of the Caravaggio reminds me of the book "The Lost Painting" about the discovery of a Caravaggio--The Taking of Christ--in Ireland.

I must admit that I read about the Fra Angelico paintings in The Independent.....I was fascinated by their article.....It seemed like they had put in so much more work and detail into their article than the Telegraph......However,it was so fascinating that something like this could still be discovered......Thanks for the post.....

Interesting follow-up article on art authentication.

They find some , they lose some . A Goya was hijacked in Pennsylvania.

I read the news about Goya in today's NYT. It's rather bizarre. They had a professional accompany the painting....

The police are releasing few details so they can prevet the tips coming in. The painting was insured for only 1 million.

Thanks for posting this, Walter. Fascinating reading!

Issues like the quagmire of authentication - and art world politics in all their forms - convinced me not to pursue art history past my undergraduate degree.

Amazing! And, coincidentally, I just finished reading that quite interesting book on the finding in Ireland of a major lost Caravaggio painting, mentioned above. Author was, I think, Jonathan Harr. Well worth a read.
