Description
Caravaggio's 1597 painting Medusa—depicting the severed head of the Gorgon—is one of the most shocking images of the Renaissance. A similar work owned by a private collector was subjected to X-rays and other tests, proving it to be an earlier variant of the Medusa and a previously undiscovered work of the master. In addition to a text discussing the "detective work" involved, this book features more than 90 color photographs, including side-by-side comparisons of the works, images of Caravaggio's drawing beneath the paint, and depictions of the cutting-edge scientific methods used to make the case for the painting's authenticity.
