Amazon Pulls Controversial Art History eBook

Amazon has pulled the eBook, Young Caravaggio – One Hundred Rediscovered Works.

The book contained previously unknown works allegedly by the great artist, but the research from the book has come into question.

AppNewser explained: “The book by art historians Maurizio Bernardelli Curuz and Adriana Conconi Fedrigolli claims to have identified a hundred previously unknown drawings by Caravaggio after looking through the archives. But other art historians are skeptical of the book’s claims, which has rendered the book controversial.”

The Telegraph UK has more: “The historians claimed that ‘after a long period of research’, their studies had ‘made it possible to understand the secret mainspring of one of the greatest painters of all time, overturning among other things the widespread theory that Caravaggio never drew.’ But their claims were met with scepticism by many scholars, while the custodians of the archive said they were unaware that the two art historians had been researching the collection.”
