Renaissance masterpieces discovered in Oxford





Two “lost” paintings by the Renaissance artist Fra Angelico have been discovered hanging behind a door in a modest two bedroom terraced house in Oxford.

The discovery has been hailed as one of the most exciting for a generation

The paintings of the Dominican saints, which are expected to fetch a combined total of more than £1 million at auction, belonged to a 77-year-old spinster who died earlier this year.

The discovery, hailed as one of the most exciting for a generation, has solved a 200-year-old mystery.
