The National Gallery of Scotland has been buying sleepers. Competition for your humble correspondent. Yesterday, the Gallery unveiled a newly discovered drawing by Titian (above). It was spotted by a sharp-eyed curator, Aidan Weston-Lewis, who saw the work in a Sotheby's sale catalogue. There, it was described as 'attributed to Jacopo Bassano'. The Gallery bought the drawing for just £30,000. More details here in The Scotsman.

Strangely enough, I saw the drawing on Saturday as part of the Gallery's new exhibition 'Titian and the Golden Age of Venetian Art', which is worth visiting if you fancy a trip to Edinburgh. But if you can't, then here's the app.

Update - the Grumpy Art Historian isn't convinced.
