Disarmed by Gregory Curtis

Book Description

A passionate researcher, Curtis shows us Europe in the early nineteenth century, caught in the grip of a classical art mania and a burgeoning romantic Hellenism. He sketches a tale of rich historical intrigue, revealing just how far the Louvre was prepared to go to prove it had the greatest classical find of the era. And how two magisterial scholars, one French and one German, battled over the statue's origins and authenticity for decades. This is a marvellously readable and entertaining history of one of the best known artworks in the world.
