    Art History can be thrilling!

    I had to keep reminding myself that this was not a fictional thriller, but a true adventure through the art world and it's many social layers and incredible characters. Jonathan Harr is a great writer and I can't wait for the next little corner of the world he chooses to expose.

    Very Compelling

    I picked up The Lost Painting on the basis of preview reviews and the fact that A Civil Action was so well written. This title, nonfiction as well, does not disappoint. The reader gets a clear view of art history, Caravaggio, and art restoration. I found myself staying up much longer than I should and am glad I found a book that I was completely immersed in.

    Get ready for a real-time treasure hunt!

    This book is a must for anyone who loves or is knowledgeable about art or an amature art historian. Mr. Harr does an superb job of educating while entertaining. The book is a fast paced ADVENTURE and modern-day TREASURE HUNT! The discriptions of Rome and the many 'usual suspects' made me feel as though I were right beside the author as he investigated this fast paced, fascinating tale. This is truely a book you will want to get multiple copies of to give to others. It's left me eagerly awaiting Mr. Harr's next investigative adventure!
