Christ found in Wiltshire

WIMetsys.jpgExperts visiting Holy Trinity, Bradford-on-Avon, to verify a Van Dyke were disappointed to see it was a copy. Their spirits rose when they noticed this picture, hanging on a nail in a plastic frame. It is the missing half of a work by Quentin Metsys (best known for The Ugly Duchess) that depicts Jesus and Mary, and was sawn in half a hundred years ago by a dealer to raise more money. The find was published in Burlington Magazine.
