The story of Leonardo and the Golden Age was nominated by a friend of this blog for the 3Quarks Prize in Art and Literature! Last time, Tang Dynasty Times made it to the finals (in history and social science)... so aiming high again for arts and literature!!
And after all, Leonardo and the Gilded Age is about what was quite possibly is the greatest art historical discovery of our lifetime: A lost Leonardo da Vinci painting of Jesus Christ. And not just any painting of Jesus Christ but a salvator mundi, or savior of the world.
