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 Italy's art superintendent Rossella Vodret, moments before unveiling the painting in the Jesuit church where it has been kept for years.
"There are certain elements that are disconcertingly poor," she added. "The quality of the painting doesn't hold up."
