An amazing drawing by Veronese, a study for a ceiling in the Doge's Palace in Venice, has been sold by the Earl of Harewood to an overseas buyer for £15.4m. The drawing has had a temporary export bar placed on it by the UK government, though it seems unlikely any UK institution will want to step in and save the work. 

Martin Bailey in The Art Newspaper has more details.
