The Vanishing Velázquez: A 19th Century Bookseller’s Obsession with a Lost Masterpiece by Laura Cumming

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks Scribner and netgalley for this arc.

There is so much history and in depth research that went into this book. Laura Cumming’s is a first rate historian who can make this very easy and exciting to read. I loved looking up the paintings online in color. Its crazy that people went to such lengths in the past for art and funny in a lot of parts of the book too.
