New Caravaggio drawings discovered in Italy

Italian art experts have reportedly discovered around 100 drawings and a number of paintings by the young Renaissance master Caravaggio, in a find that could be worth up to 700 million euros.

The artworks were found among a collection of works held at Sforza Castle in the northern Italian city, which were done by the pupils of painter Simone Peterzano, with whom Caravaggio studied from the age of 11.

Photographs of the works, extracts of which were published in the Italian media, range from preparative anatomical sketches to religious scenes.

The newly-unearthed works could be worth around 700 million euros ($840 million) according to experts Maurizio Bernardelli Curuz and Adriana Conconi Fedrigolli, who has been studying the paintings for two years, the ANSA news agency said — via redwolf.newsvine.com
