Art officials on Tuesday unveiled the painting at the center of the latest Caravaggio mystery, after the Vatican newspaper first suggested and then denied that the canvas was the work of the Italian master.
It seemed too good to be true: The discovery of a new painting by Caravaggio during the celebrations marking the 400th anniversary of his death. It turns out, it probably was.
"It's a very interesting painting but I believe we can rule out _ at least for now _ that it's a Caravaggio," said art superintendent Rossella Vodret. "The quality of the painting doesn't hold up."
Vodret said the most interesting element is the position and perspective of the saint, who's shown on the grill, one arm extended, his figure lit up.
