Professor David M. Stone is quoted in articles in the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal on the controversy surrounding a painting of Judith Beheading Holofernes, discovered in a French attic in 2014 and attributed to Caravaggio by some scholars.
Update: The painting was sold in private sale, two days before it was to be auctioned off for an estimated amount in the range of $115-170 million. According to the wishes of the previous owners, the buyer plans to display it in a major museum. Marc Labarbe Auctions of Toulouse, France, stated that the identity of the new owner and the purchase price are protected by a confidentiality clause, but that "the painting will leave French soil."
