You are correct... I stated that backwards. He says the art and
architecture "facts" are true. So, which ones are not? Here are just
a few off the top of my head .....
In the The Virgin of the Rocks he states that the infant John is
Jesus and Jesus is John, the order of which he makes a big deal
about when in fact he has them backwards.
The Louvre pyramid does not have 666 panes of glass
The "mysterious" knife in the last supper is not floating without a
body, it is in Peter's hand bent back and resting on his hip in a
gesture that reminds me very much of the way my mother holds a
spatula when cooking pancakes or something like that.
There are more. Actually, it is harder to find art or archetectual
examples in the book that ARE accurate. He wrongly states sizes of
paintings, their contents, the people who had them commissioned,
geographical locations of buildings, attributes of buildings, etc.,
