The Vanishing Man
- In Pursuit of Velazquez
- By: Laura Cumming
- Narrated by: Siobhan Redmond
- Length: 10 hrs and 14 mins
BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week. In 1845, a Reading bookseller named John Snare came across the dirt-blackened portrait of a prince at a country house auction. Suspecting that it might be a long-lost Velázquez, he bought the picture and set out to discover its strange history. When Laura Cumming stumbled on a startling trial involving John Snare, it sent her on a search of her own.
Six stars. Wondrous, and beautifully read.
