Murder at the National GalleryLarge Print - 1996
What happens when a world-class art expert wants not only to exhibit a long-lost painting by Caravaggio but also to own it? Margaret Truman takes us into a heady exciting world of genius with this story of a senior curator at the nation's famed National Gallery of Art who plans a brilliant exhibition around the masterpiece. He also begins to make a more personal and daring plan. His masterly scheme promises prestige, fame, a small fortune, plus a number of artful deceptions and a disappearing act that will rival the story of the painting itself. But circumstances intervene in the form of a demanding son, a more demanding and ambitious mistress, an unscrupulous collector, persons suddenly dead, and the fact that Annabel Reed-Smith is asked by her ex-college roommate, now the vice president's wife, to keep an eye on things at the Gallery and the coming exhibition.
