The Optickal Illusion by Rachel Halliburton

In 1797 Ann Jemima Provis and her father Thomas possess a manuscript that allegedly reveals the Venetian Secret; how to paint like Titian. Benjamin West, President of the Royal Academy, hopes he can use the secret to revive his own flagging career. The resulting scandal shocked the art world and indeed London Society as a whole. A brilliant and fascinating story.
