Similar stories often begin with the attic. the Canvas found in the repair of the roof of the house in Toulouse. Explained that under the non-repaired roof painting "Judith and Holofernes" without compromising the safety of spent 150 years. Look – not like Caravaggio. And looked – maybe it is. Started organizationally-маркетинговые "swing". First, France has imposed a ban on the export of national heritage. Then removed as there were doubts in authenticity. Found Caravaggio even offered to buy the Louvre, but he refused – allegedly from-за cost (the owners had requested 100 million euros), not from-за that is not genuine.

But as now we have reports of an unnamed foreign buyer no doubt was left. "Was there a boy" - hence not visible. But he acted decisively: do not wait for the bidding with forty million dollars, and immediately put more than a hundred (who-то calls $150 000 000) and to permanently close this question. Then off to another country and be there to understand. What? After the stunning success of "Leonardo 45 pounds," why not work with "Caravaggio from the attic"?
