The Lost Painting

By Jonathan Harr

This is Harr's acclaimed book about the search for a lost painting by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. He traces the painting's tangled history masterfully, like a suspense writer slipping us the details of a mystery that has held its secrets for nearly four centuries. Critics loved the book, calling it "rich and wonderful" and "an effortlessly educational and marvelously entertaining mix of art history and scholarly sleuthing." Harr's first book was A Civil Action.
