The Lost Painting

The Lost Painting - Jonathan Harr I enjoyed the scholarly hunt, the 'paper trail' (or what was left of it over the centuries), the dispute and authentication of provenance, and the restoration process of this lost painting: 'The Taking of Christ' by Caravaggio, which has been 'lost' in the annals of time. The icing on the cake would be be able to see this artwork in person, someday, and to be able to say, "I read all about your discovery." It is a non-fiction work, but reads like novel, so it's not dry or boring.
