Caravaggios found in French church!

Two Caravaggios have been found in the Church of Saint Anthony in Loches, France, where they had been kept under the organ loft! Pilgrimage of Our Lord to Emmaus and Saint Thomas Putting his Finger on Christ's Wound are similar to other Caravaggios in London and Potsdam, but not exactly the same. Caravaggio made copies of his works for different patrons. For two pairs of Caravaggios shown side-by-side, visit Coxsoft Art's Comparisons Page. Click the blue C in the right-hand frame, then go to Comparisons.
