'The history of art is full of ghosts', writes Celine Delavaux and here she presents an 'imaginary museum' of works that have disappeared or been transformed, destroyed, hidden or stolen. Among the 40 lost works of art brought back to life in text and pictures are Leonardo da Vinci's Leda and the Swan, now known only through copies; the lost Romanov jewels; Klimt's Philosophy, burned by the Nazis; and the Buddhas of Bamiyan, blown up by the Taliban in 2001.
