Met to Exhibit "Torment of St Anthony"

It is fairly uncontested that "The Torment of St Anthony" is Michelangelo's earliest known painting. The painting, a copy of a Schongauer engraving, is among only a few easel paintings attributed to Michelangelo. Here is the story.

Wow... this is so amazing. It seems lately science is just starting to focus on art restoration and discovery under works of secondary pieces. I can hardly wait to see what gets discovered in the future. Thanks for sharing!
