"Lifting the veil on the shadowy world of art insiders, Costamagna delivers an entertaining reflection on the dealers, devotees, and decision makers." Town & Country Magazine

It's a rare and secret profession, comprising a few dozen people around the world equipped with a mysterious mixture of knowledge and innate sensibility. Summoned to Swiss bank vaults, Fifth Avenue apartments and Tokyo storerooms, they are entrusted by collectors, dealers and museums to decide if a coveted picture is real or fake and to determine if it was painted by Leonardo da Vinci or Raphael. The Eye brings to light the rarified world of connoisseurs devoted to the authentication and discovery of Old Master art works. This is an art adventure story and a memoir all in one, written by a leading expert on the Renaissance whose m├ętier is a high-stakes detective game involving massive amounts of money and frenetic activity in the service of the art market and scholarship alike. It's also an eloquent argument for the enduring value of visual creativity, told with passion, brilliance and surprising candor.

"[A] rollicking and erudite tour of the art world . . . Costamagna's candor and well-earned hubris make for an entertaining foray into the high-stakes art world." Publishers Weekly

"As thrilling as a police novel." La Croix

"An insider's look at the dramatic world of attributing and dating art . . . This art world Sherlock Holmes travels the globe . . . Delightful." Introspective Magazine

"One comes away feeling somewhat re-sensitized to beauty and somewhat nostalgic for an era when museums weren't the selfie-stick madhouses they are today." The Washington Post
