 True tales of lost art, built around case studies of famous works, their creators, and stories of disappearance and recovery

From the bestselling author of The Art of Forgery comes this dynamic narrative that tells the fascinating stories of artworks stolen, looted, or destroyed in war, accidentally demolished or discarded, lost at sea or in natural disasters, or attacked by iconoclasts or vandals; works that were intentionally temporal, knowingly destroyed by the artists themselves or their patrons, covered over with paint or plaster, or recycled for their materials. An exciting read that spans the centuries and the continents.

Noah Charney is a professor of art history and the founder and president of the Association for Research into Crimes against Art (ARCA). He has published hundreds of articles in magazines such as the Guardian, the Washington PostSalon, the Art Newspaper, the ObserverTendencias del Mercado del Arte, and many more. He also appears regularly on radio and television for the BBC, ITV, NPR, National Geographic, Travel Channel and others. He is the Pulitzer-nominated author of twelve books, several international best-sellers, among them the Pulitzer Prize-nominated Collector of Lives: Giorgio Vasari and the Invention of Art (2017) and Phaidon's bestselling The Art of Forgery (2015). He lives in Slovenia with his family and their hairless dog, Hubert van Eyck.
