The discovery of a long-lost Michelangelo drawing in 1995 in the library of Castle Howard, England, made newspaper headlines around the world. That drawing, Study of a Mourning Woman, was recently acquired by the J. Paul Getty Museum. In this talk the discoverer of the drawing, Julien Stock (formerly of Sotheby's), tells of that magical moment, and of a lifetime of detective work as a connoisseur of old master drawings and paintings.
