Albany, NY – Writer Jonathan Harr's followup to his bestseller "A Civil Action" was many years in the making, and inspired by an article Harr read in the New York Times about the discovery of a long-missing painting by Michelangelo Caravaggio. The non-fiction book, "The Lost Painting: The Quest for a Caravaggio Masterpiece," follows the modern-day search for a painting depicting Judas's betrayal of Jesus, while intertwining that story with details about the artist who painted it.
