I'm afraid I can never get that excited about gold ground paintings, but if you can, then cheer at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen's acquisition of the above c.1410-20 triptych by an unknown artist for more than 1 million euros. More here.

Update - a reader writes:

You say "I'm afraid I can never get that excited about gold ground paintings": but you just did get excited (rightly) about the Lorenzetti panel acquired by the Ferens!! 

That was, I'm ashamed to say, more at a regional UK museum acquiring a such an expensive work. 

Update II - another reader asks:

Not even a little bit excited about the Wilton Diptych? 

Oh alright then. But mainly because it's Richard II.
