Image of Any takers for this Batoni?

Picture: ACE

UK museums take note - the above portrait by Batoni, of the 3rd Baron Monson of Burton, is on offer through the Arts Council. No price is stated. The picture is listed on the Council's 'notification to sell' page, which is where artworks that have been conditionally exempted from death duties are listed before a sale.

It's a very fine picture, and a handsome addition to any museum.
