Great on both art criticism and treasure hunting

Philip Mould has a gripping story to tell of hunting down great paintings disguised by years of poor restoration and overpainting to the point where original attributions have been lost. He tells it in an absolutely fascinating way by striking a lovely balance between the mechanics of how the art world works; the craft of picture restoration and the characters who work in it. The style is accessible and charming and overall it was a pleasure to listen to.
