BBC NEWS | Europe | Delight at Caravaggio discovery

This is fantastic news, not only because it adds two more Caravaggios to my must-see list, but also because the Doubting Thomas in Potsdam is at risk due to its dubious hanging: It’s found in the grand hall of Sanssouci, illuminated by dozens of large, sunny windows. I was tremendously disappointed when I visited, as the painting is one of my absolute favourite works by my absolute favourite artist, but I couldn’t see the entire canvas due to the blocks of light. Hopefully Loches will be smart enough to install them in a more protective – and more flattering – locale. Thanks to Skye for Stumbling it!
