Summary
Germany, 1945. Monuments Man John Skilton arrives in the bombed-out city of Wurzburg with orders -- and a personal mission -- to rescue art from the ravages of war. Among the ruin, he discovers a series of magnificent frescoes that have miraculously survived the devastation. But who painted them? More importantly, how will Skilton save them from total destruction? Set largely against the background of the Venetian Republic in its final flowering, this is the true story of the Tiepolo family, who live, love, and die by painting, revealing the human passion and hard-nosed business dealing that lie just beneath the surface of some of the world's most heavenly works of art. And it tells the story of a modest curator-turned-soldier whose struggle to save Tiepolo's masterpiece is itself an act of creativity, one that turns him into a new kind of hero for our times
