Newly discovered painting is not Caravaggio's work: Vatican museum director
Catholic World News - July 27, 2010
The director of the Vatican Museums has disclosed that a recently discovered painting, which L’Osservatore Romano identified as the work of Caravaggio, is actually the work of a lesser artist. Antonio Paolucci said that the painting, which had been on display in a church in Rome, was of “modest” value, not the work of the Baroque master.
