Carpaccio : Secret History Of Art Podcast

In this episode of The Secret History of Art, Noah Charney takes you on a guided tour of Vittore Carpaccio’s “Young Knight in a Landscape,” a large painting which hangs in Madrid’s Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza.  Learn why this knight’s identity was hidden in symbols and code, which symbols have been deciphered, and how a forger managed to trick centuries of owners of this work into thinking that it was by Albrecht Durer.
