The Museum of Lost Art
The Museum of Lost Art features tales of lost art, built around case studies of famous works, their creators, and stories of disappearance and recovery. From the bestselling author Noah Charney, this dynamic narrative that tells the fascinating stories of artworks stolen, looted, or destroyed in war, accidentally demolished or discarded, lost at sea or in natural disasters, or attacked by iconoclasts or vandals; works that were intentionally temporal, knowingly destroyed by the artists themselves or their patrons, covered over with paint or plaster, or recycled for their materials. An exciting read that spans the centuries and the continents.Author: Noah Charney
