Catherine Whitney

  • Catherine Whitney's brother, Vietnam veteran Jim Schuler, died at just fifty-three years old, while living in a flophouse. It had been sixteen years since, in one of his drunken rages, he had last seen his family. He was one of countless veterans who never recovered from the trauma of war and the stress of returning to live in a country that didn't care about his pain.The story of what happened to Whitney's brother resonates with humanity and has a clear relevance to current national concerns. Soldiers Once puts a very human face on veterans' policies, finding in Whitney's personal drama a broader significance. It is both an investigation into her brother's loss and a meditation on the lost dreams of our military brotherhood.

  • UNE STUPÉFIANTE MÉPRISE Comment un tableau " anonyme allemand XIXe siècle ", racheté 19 000 $ il y a cinq ans par un collectionneur privé, peut-il s'avérer être aujourd'hui un Léonard de Vinci estimé à plus de 140 millions de dollars ?
    Peter Silverman dévoile pour la première fois les indices qui l'ont mis sur la piste de La Belle Princesse. Il raconte les minutieuses investigations des meilleurs experts et scientifiques internationaux, de New York à Varsovie, confirmant à présent qu'il s'agit bien du 13e portrait connu de Léonard, sans doute celui de Bianca Sforza, peint il y a plus de 500 ans par le maître.

    UN PORTRAIT QUI DERANGE Si cette découverte fait polémique, c'est surtout parce qu'elle avait échappé à certains experts et sommités des musées mondiaux qui, de fait, ne veulent plus à aucun prix en entendre parler.

    UNE ENQUETE PASSIONNANTE Ce livre plonge au coeur des arcanes du monde de l'art et de la science : mêlant techniques d'authentification de pointe, histoire de l'art, intuitions fulgurantes et intrigues assassines.

    " Le mystère du 13e portrait de Léonard enfin élucidé. " LE FIGARO " La découverte qui sème la zizanie dans le monde de l'art. " TIME " Une incroyable histoire. " DER SPIEGEL " Un faisceau de preuves impressionnant, Peter Silverman a eu du nez ! " BEAUX ARTS MAGAZINE
