In this lecture, Dr. John T. Spike takes us on the trail of some of the most arresting and realistic Neapolitan paintings of the 17th century. The case of the anonymous Master of the Annunciation to the Shepherds has all the elements of a classic mystery: a host of distinguished detectives, a dossier of contradictory clues, and, of course, a body [of paintings, actually]. Who did them? The primary suspects are two shadowy painters with confusingly similar names. Walk the mean streets of Naples with Dr. Spike in his search for the missing master.
