FILE - Undated picture made available Monday, July 19, 2010, by the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano showing "The Martyrdom of St. Lawrence" painting. The Vatican's top art historian has shot down a report in the Vatican's own newspaper that had suggested that a recently discovered painting was a Caravaggio. The head of the Vatican Museums, Antonio Paolucci, wrote Monday, July 26, 2010, in the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano that the work, discovered in the sacristy of a Jesuit church in Rome, was most likely a copy of an original painted by a Caravaggio student. It was L'Osservatore Romano itself which last week set the art world aflutter with a front-page article "A New Caravaggio,'' detailing the artistry behind the "Martyrdom of St. Lawrence.''
