One of Goya's most famous paintings, The Colossus, might actually be by his assistant, Asensio Julia

And I quote:

"Experts at the Prado started an investigation last year when José Luis DÍez, the gallery’s curator of 19th-century art, suggested that The Colossus was the work of Juliá after a detailed analysis of the picture."

So what, pray tell, did his detailed analysis reveal that led to this conclusion?


"He based his claims on the discovery of the initials A. J. in one corner of the canvas. "


Someone call Lovejoy...
