The Spanish newspaper El País have published an article providing an update on the potential Caravaggio that resurfaced earlier this year. The article explains that experts from different parts of the globe have descended on Madrid to examine the picture. It is reported that visits by said specialists have been limited to a maximum of thirty minutes. Furthermore, the article delves into the provenance research undertaken by the art historian Maria Cristina Terzaghi, which has uncovered several interesting lines of enquiry although does not account for the painting during the Napoleonic Wars. A preliminary report is expected in September.
