A small painting, a record-breaking price at auction and controversy over the artist are investigated with all the pace of a thriller in The Last Leonardo. Ben Lewis – author, art critic and documentary filmmaker – has studied the art market for 20 years and in this new book he delves deeply into the murky world of contemporary art. He has written widely for the broadsheet and the international press and is a visiting fellow of the Warburg Institute.

Lucrezia Walker is a lecturer at the National Gallery, teaches the London Art History Programme for the University of North Carolina and has 20 years’ experience of leading cultural tours in major European cities.
