Image of Tate acquires Castle Howard Reynolds

Picture: TAN

More good news from the UK's Acceptance in Lieu scheme - a fine full-length by Sir Joshua Reynolds of the 5th Earl of Carlisle (above) has been acquired by Tate Britain from Castle Howard. The picture was offered to the nation to clear £4.7m of inheritance tax. Happily, the picture will stay in situ at Castle Howard, though it will be made available for loans and exhibitions in the future as Tate sees fit. More here in The Art Newspaper.
