*** Disarmed by Gregory Curtis


I loved Disarmed: The Story of the Venus de Milo, which tells the story of the unlikely finding of the statue by a French navy officer on the island of Melos in Greece, how a different man took credit for the find, and especially, how philosophical convictions prevented Louvre officials from admitting that the statue might be from the despised Hellenistic “decadence”. It’s a story of art and history that reads like a thriller.
