Kovels
: You never know where a masterpiece might be discovered! A 400-year-old “lost” portrait of the Duke of Buckingham by Peter Paul Rubens was identified by an expert from a British TV series called “Britain’s Lost Masterpieces.” It was in the Glasgow Museum collection on public display at the Pollok House, one of the city’s stately homes. The picture had been restored several times, and the over-painting and layers of old dirt led earlier experts to think it was a copy by another artist.
